My tangle pattern: Appearance

It's a fruitful day.  Carole Ohl posted her pineapple pattern, and mine uses pears.  More or less.  Feel free to substitute other fruits or shapes. I think asymmetrical shapes are more interesting with this design,than symmetrical, such as circles, would be, but play with this and discover what your own preference is.


  1. Thanks for sharing your art. It is wonderful. And inspiring!

  2. Thank you! I had fun with this one!

    a visual feast and what amazing textures

  4. I had a .07 multiliner SP pen that was almost out of ink, and you can get some lovely 'marks' when that happens. It's all random, but you keep building. Then I switched to a Sharpie which has a distinctly blue cast compared to the multiner. Lastly, add the fat Pitt brush pen for shading, and it really did add complexity. I barely had to do anything--the pens did it all!
