I have no idea where the inspiration for this one came. It’s a little wintery, but also reminds of 50’s ‘beat’ kind of art. Enjoy!
Here’s an easy little pattern that looks a little like olives sitting on fruit slices, lol! It makes a fun string or border. Enjoy!
Here’s some more geometric homework. Circles and diamonds tonight, and some shading to make them 3D. For a variation, look at the detail I took from my ‘World Map’ drawing where I left some of the tangle unshaded, and transitioned to the 3D. Isn’t this a wonderful world? Circles. Diamonds. A dash of darker lines,Continue reading “My tangle pattern: Fatopyr”
More geometric shapes! Squares and circles, circles and squares. In the pattern instructions, I’ve placed the alternating circles and squares into a ribbon shape. In the example from my wallet, you can see that I used a variation, making it more of a free-form, and using a different dark/light pattern. Either way, it’s distinctive andContinue reading “My tangle pattern: Grophlog”

I tell ya, I get as excited as a little kid when I realize a truth about patterns. The gaps of a complex pattern are the secret. If you figure out the repetition that occurs around the gaps, you’ve got the pattern. Take this interweaving of four triangles. I spent forever trying to figure outContinue reading “My tangle pattern: Intersect”
Today’s offering relies heavily on shading for a 3D look. You could do it without, but it looks so-o-o much cooler with. You can use this a border, or fill, or, if you look at my sample, you can see how to use it as a string.
I thought I had already posted this. It’s the last of my cactus inspired patterns (for now, anyway!). Once again nature shows her obsession with repetition. I’ve done my example as being fairly true to life, but you can go crazy with this one, adding more swirls and flourishes than Snidely Whiplash’s mustache, or forgettingContinue reading “My tangle pattern: Kalancho”
This week’s fascination has been with geometric shapes. I’ve come up with a few patterns based on them. This first has the advantage of being both geometric and floral. I give you Ingsmoor.
A friend of mine is also having a raffle for this beautiful peacock. She also has a video where you can watch her paint it. Just Click where the peacock tells you to!
