Duotangle

The next discipline I tried was a duotangle. I’m not sure I did one before. Yesterday I saw Zavatar 2, and fell in love. Easier than I thought, and doable with the stepout. There is also a video showing how to do this. This tangle makes a typical central focus for a tile, and I felt this wouldn’t work as a monotangle. So I decided on one of my go-to tangles, Florz. I didn’t use a frame, but a string to help me draw Zavatar.

Loved this one, so much fun to draw this tile. I’m sure I’m going to practice Zavatar 2 some more, and I’m already thinking about which other patterns to combine with it.

I’m working my way through the Beginners Guide from pattern-collections.com. They started with tipple, and you can see my first try here. I used a background I made some time ago. It was made with chalk pastels, and I loved the colors. Besides the classical micron pen and pencil I used white gel pen for drawing. This was also the Beginners Challenge at the Monotangle Adventures on facebook. So here is it:

Although I’m not really a beginner I learned a lot from each of the tiles. So much fun, so I decided to use string no. 1 from Pattern-collections to fill with tipple. Again I used a background I had in my stash, but this time it was painted with watercolor. I used pen and pencil, plus a bit of colored pencil.

Then there was the challenge #26 at the Monotangle group, and they chose the pattern Aim plus string 111 from tanglepatterns.com.. This time I only used a bit of glaze pen to add some color. So this is my third monotangle.

I find that Monotangles are great for practicing deliberate strokes, for thinking about the tangles, and varying them. Besides this is just plain relaxing :)
