How to draw WOOTI

Welcome to the first Monday of a bright new year of delightful tangles and Zentangle creativity possibilities to look forward to.

Before we get started I’d like to give a warm welcoming hug to the new tanglers who’ve joined our community.

We are absolutely delighted to have you aboard and look forward to your participation in the comments and – when you’re ready – in sharing your own new tangles. Let’s go …

To start our 2020 year off, Belgian CZT Ria Matheussen shares her Wooti tangle with us.

If you’ve been around for a while you’ll remember that Ria is always on the lookout for new tangles and Wooti is her 21st on the site. She found this image and was inspired to deconstruct it so we could draw it as a tangle.

Ria writes,

I’m so glad to have discovered a new pattern that I called Wooti. Again I have found inspiration in a picture of a wooden tile.

The difference with this tangle is that every square not only touches the other but a little piece of the first drawn square comes into the next square. Thanks to the grid lines, it is very easy and pleasant to draw.

You can draw Wooti by hand, exactly like on the picture but it is difficult to do that in the right way. I have chosen to fill a square black and fill the next one with stripes. By this way the new tangle is a bit different from the one on the picture, much easier to draw and the lines of the grid are disappearing.

When you redefine one side with a thicker stroke you can get more 3D effect.

This is Ria’s lovely Zendala featuring Wooti in a circular border including elements of the Zentangle-originals Indy-Rella and Crescent Moon together with Vano and Appease in the center.

It’s a cool grid-based tangle that’s easy to tangle. Wooti makes an effective background or can act as a ribbon woven through your tile, or as Ria has done in her Zendala, an eye-catching frame around it.

Ria illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Wooti below where she includes one of many potential variations for you to explore.

TAGS & How to locate tangles by artist or type on TanglePatterns

Did you know you can easily find TANGLES BY ARTIST and TANGLES BY TYPE on TanglePatterns?

Each tangle has its tags listed as live links in the date bar just above the comments section on each page. The date bar looks like this screen capture where I've highlighted the Tag section in aqua:

Scroll down on any tangle's page and click on those live links in the date bar to get to similar types of tangles and to find tangles by the same artist.

There's also a section called TANGLES BY TYPE in the LEFT sidebar of any page as shown in this image:

Scroll to that section in the sidebar, click the down arrow and select the type of tangle you're looking for, and a new page will open with the list of all the tangles of that type. (TANGLES BY ARTIST are located directly below there.)

Feel like choosing tangles at random for your Zentangle® art?

There are four ways to do this on the site.

  • First, there's the random TANGLE SELECTOR in the left sidebar with instructions on how to use it. This handy gadget can be used to select Zentangle®-original tangles from this page and it can also be used to select random Strings. Just type in the number range you want to select from.
  • Second, just above that section there's a TANGLE RANDOMIZER that has already selected 5 random tangles to use.
  • Third, many like to use the tangles listed at the end of every tangle in the "You might also like:" section of the page.
  • Fourth, use the selection of tangles in any TANGLE REFRESHER. This is a great way to revisit tangles you've forgotten about or might have missed when it was originally posted.

Be sure to check out all the features that are hidden in plain sight in the sidebars on both sides of every page.

And remember to check out the main menu bar across the top of every page — there's a lot of great reading and learning there that you won't want to miss.
