How to draw CAMBER

Zentangle pattern: Camber. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only.

At least 20 million people are in the storm’s path and over half a million have been ordered to evacuate.Source.

This incredible satellite image from the National Hurricane Center shows Hurricane Laura is practically the entire size of the Gulf of Mexico. Astonishing and frightening. For reference, Hurricane Andrew (August 24, 1992) and Hurricane Katrina (August 29, 2005) were both powerful and destructive Category 5 storms. April isn’t “the cruellest month”. (T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land.)

Camber is our cool Wednesday tangle and it comes to us from tangler Donna Stanchfield from Maine. It’s her first on the site.

Donna writes,

In 2014 I retired from my lampshade designing business. Winters are long here in Maine and with all my newly found extra time I discovered Zentangle® online, and have been tangling ever since.

It seems to be the perfect fit for this time in my life and brings such peace of mind.

The worldwide Zentangle community has opened up the possibilities of friendships that would never have happened elsewhere, I’m so impressed by the caring of this wonderful group of people!

Camber happened when I started what I thought was going to be a traditional Mandala…well my pen seemed to have a different idea, and this pattern was part of the result.

Camber is simple but you can do lots of variations such as vary the line weights, flip it in different directions, add most any fragment as a center pattern to name a few.

Information for the completist’s body of knowledge 🙂 … Camber defined:

noun: camber; plural noun: cambers

    • the slightly convex or arched shape of a road or other horizontal surface. “the deck beams are curved for the camber of the deck”
    • British: a tilt built into a road at a bend or curve, enabling vehicles to maintain speed.
    • the slight sideways inclination of the front wheels of a motor vehicle.

When I first saw Camber the tangle it reminded me of the Zentangle-original Stoic, similar but different. For my Camber example I decided to try it out in a grid style and leave the fancy stuff to Donna 😉

Donna illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Camber below, “Pictured is Camber with a border of Hibred.
