Zentangle Community in India - Part 01

This whole week, I worked on the tangle-patterns created by the Zentangle Community in India . For many, who are first time reading this blog, I would like to let you know, that we have a wonderful online Zentangle Community India, wherein each week, we create Zentangle Artworks on the prompt patterns and strings. In past few months, we have been playing with all the patterns deconstructed by either the CZTs (Certified Teachers) or the Tanglers of India. Due to time constraint and other distractions, I have not been able to keep up to in consistent manners. And so, this week, I just wanted to dedicate my Zen-Time only in creating artworks by the tangle/string prompts from this community.

OFloat Tangle Pattern

I finished my tan tile and excitedly showed it to my mom and asked her what it resembles to, and in an instant, she said, that it looks like Oil Floating over water and we both agreed on how some patterns appear over our Indian Curries, when oil mixes with the water. So, that inspired me to keep this tangle named as OFloat for “Oil Float”.

Holi Fun

This year in Holi, I just gave a twist to one of my Tangle Pattern AkiChain. I kept this name after my daughter's Akshara, as we both accidentally hopped on this pattern while trying out some other design. When I think of Tangle, I see it more like a fun than some pattern or design, so all my patterns have some fun to it! And ofcourse, repetitive strokes turn the tangle into a pattern.
