Does the pattern at the bottom of the ZIA above look familiar? It is sort of a tangleation of Nightsbridge I guess. Just add random bouncing spots. The one below makes me want chili for dinner... kidney beans anyone?
This is one I did some time ago and somehow never shaded (fixed that this morning) and never scanned in... maybe I didn't like it at the time. I think it shows that Sanibelle does not have to be done en-mass to be effective and pretty... it works with just a few motifs to fill in a V shaped space with elegance.
I had a couple of comments about the wavy pattern in the last ZIA in my post from last week which also shows up in the top entry to this challenge. I was looking for any known pattern that might resemble it. No one came up with anything and I haven't run across any so far either. So, here is a stab at breaking it down... it is very easy actually.
I am calling it groovy because, despite how the lines and shading make it look in drawn form, in the original pattern (found in the wooden panels in an elevator) the white spaces in the tangle pattern were smooth curved grooves in the panel, just the right size to run a finger down. It was a very soothing and textural touchy-feely pattern. I tried not to fondle it too much lest I creep out the others in the elevator and embarrass my pre-teen son. Here it is paired with Inapod and Footlights and River. Note that the sine waves that make up the backbone of the pattern should touch at the peaks, or very nearly. The lines that fill in the spaces should meet the sine wave spine smoothly and at an acute angle to get the right flowing feel.
I hope you have a fabulous and productive week. Thanks for stopping by.

Sanibelle is such a wonderfully versatile pattern and each of your tiles gives its own story of beauty. I love the groovy pattern. I can see it in a future zentangle taking center stage!ReplyDelete

I am new at this and your tangles seemed to give me great ideas. I tend toward alpha shapes, mix it up and frame it and add stuff outside the box.... well sort of. New at this, remember that part! Love your shapes, thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete

Does anyone know the name of the tangle pattern on the far left side of the "bean"?ReplyDelete
far left on the "bean" is Paradox done in mostly trianglesDelete
What is the name of the tangle under groovy in the tutorial? The one with the double bar and dangly stick.(such technical terms, I know.) I really like that one too.Delete
The other pattern in the step out is called Jalousie by Stephanie Kukla - it can be found on Tanglepatterns. So sorry I did not see this comment until nearly a year later!Delete
