My Tangle Patterns: Tessallation


I won’t lie.  This isn’t an easy tangle. It took me a lot of practice to get it right. It’s best done in a space at least twice as tall as it is wide.  It isn’t an exact tessallation as I draw it, but it could be.  I think for zens, it is best to just let it flow.

Ever since I went to an Escher exhibit, I’ve wanted to do a tangle like this.  That man was a genius!

For variation, if you give the fish big or curved lips, and feather the fins and tails, you can make them look more like a parrot or chicken.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
