Since we last explored a tangle from him, Spanish tangler Tomàs Padrós has become a Certified Zentangle Teacher. Clearly this was inevitable 🙂

And Blind Membranart is his latest contribution to our singular resource of all things Zentangle®.

Blind Membranart is our last tangle for 2019 as I take the rest of the week and next “off” for the Christmas and New Year holidays and work on my TanglePatterns.com TANGLE GUIDE, 2020 Edition.

My dear CZT#7 pal Australian artist Michele Beauchamp has sent her cover art, and as always it is deliciously special ZIA eye candy featuring her signature take on tangles from the year.

*If you have questions about the GUIDE, visit the BOOK REVIEWS > TANGLEPATTERNS.COM TANGLE GUIDE page on the top menu bar (or click the link above) for everything you need to know.

And now for our tangle, Tomàs writes,

Blind Membranart is an almost opposite version to Membranart.

In that tangle, a kind of abstract membranous tissue extends and adapts to a frame and reveals a farther background through its “holes”.

Here, the “membranous tissue” clings to a solid form and envelops it, so the “holes” do not give an empty space but a solid mass.

It adapts to any string shape.

Tomàs shares three different step-by-step instructions for drawing Blind Membranart, “In the first example I play with the contrast between the two versions of Membranart.

“In the second example I adapted Blind Membranart to a completely random string and decorated the background with Shiraz.”

    Tomas is one of the most giving Zentangle artists and now CZT (lucky us) in this community. I joined Instagram just to follow him and get his beautiful patterns. I’ve since been fortunate enough to get to know him a little through this platform and absolutely love all of his contributions. Thank you again for offering up so many possibilities with this pattern Tomas. I am definitely going to use this in my class at the clinic. Happy Holidays to all!

    Linda,
    Thank you for another fabulous year. I so appreciate all of your hard work and all you do to keep us never wanting for patterns. May you and your family have a wonderful holiday season.

    blind membranart has a lot of scope for shading! it reminds me of swiss cheese, or maybe little microbes LOL especially in the example he provides. It’ll be fun to play with.
