My new tangle - SIROS - and a reminder to the beautiful Mackintosh Roses
It's almost one year ago that I wrote my last blogpost.
For me blogging is really too time consuming and I share my work mostly on Instagram (SimTangle_czt)
Today I decided to publish a new tangle and to post it also here on my blog.
Many of you know, that I love Art Deco (Art Nouveau, Jugendstil...). I posted several times about my experiences in Glasgow and around exploring the beautiful work of C.R. Mackintosh.
This inspired me to draw the Mackintosh Roses, which I draw from time to time, which are drawn similarly to the tangle "String Rose" by Helen Williams. I start with the outline and draw the strings into the middle.
Here is an example of the Macintosh roses on a black Zendala - one of my latest works. I will draw it together with my students tomorrow during my next online class:
Some days ago I saw a photo on Instagram with a beautiful art nouveau detail by Dorka @magicofmoment_s
and I knew immediately that I would like to give it a Zentangle look.
After a few sketches I found a good and (for my opinion) simple way to deconstruct it and to create this tangle. It reminds to a flower, may be a rose . So I named it SIROS ....
The tangle can be drawn with and without the stem, but for me the thorned stem fits very well to a rose. It can also be drawn behind the bulb in Hollibaugh fashion - so that it does not need to have a special direction..
I posted the step out today on Instagram and in a Facebook group, received lots of likes and saw already 4 tiles with beautiful SIROSes.
Thank you so much!
SIROS can be started not only with a Pentagram, also with hexagon an even wit ha circle!
I wish you all a lot of fun with SIROS and look forward to seeing them soon!
Stay safe and keep tangling.
