How to draw EZE

How to draw the Zentangle pattern Eze, tangle and deconstruction by Emiko Kaneko. Image copyright the artist and used with permission, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.Hi everyone, delighted to see you again 😉 !

Today for our mid-week muse we are exploring Japanese CZT Emiko Kaneko’s lovely (and easy) Eze tangle.

Emiko has several beautiful tangles on the site, Nayu was her most recent.

Emiko explains a little about her Eze tangle and her inspiration for its name:

This tangle is drawn with the image of a plant. Even one piece looks like a petal or a leaf, and when one leaf is piled up, it grows into various shapes.

It is easy to draw because it consists only of C curve and S wave.

You can place this tangle between other tangles, make it into a flower leaf, or connect it to make a plant. I think it’s a very easy-to-use tangle.

The name of Tangle is “Eze”, It’s a small village on a hill between Nice and Monaco that I’ve been to there in my late twenties. The botanical garden and cityscape are very cute places like a fairyland. It’s one of my favorite places. so I named it after that place.

From Wikipedia, “Èze is a beautiful hilltop medieval village in the south of France, between Monaco and Nice. The village is famous for its spectacular views, impressive architecture, and stunning geographical location above the French Riviera. …

Èze has been described as an ‘eagle’s nest’ because of its location overlooking a high cliff 427 metres (1,401 ft) above sea level on the French Mediterranean. It is so high that the light ochre church within (Notre Dame de l’Assomption built in 1764) can be seen from afar. An Egyptian cross inside the church suggests the village’s ancient roots, when the Phoenicians erected a temple there to honour the goddess Isis.

Èze, renowned tourist site on the French Riviera, is famous worldwide for the view of the sea from its hill top. Its Jardin botanique d’Èze is known for its collection of cacti and succulents, as well as its panoramic views. Walt Disney spent a significant amount of time in Èze.

The oldest building in the village is the Chapelle de la Sainte Croix and dates back to 1306.

BTW – If you click on the photo of Èze above you’ll get a better sense of the breathtaking panorama of this famous village. Wowzers.

Emiko illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Eze below where she features it in a graceful duotangle with a delicate variation of the Zentangle-original Bronx Cheer.
