Zentangle – a new way to express yourself
If you have ever seen beautiful drawings like these –
you would definitely think that they were made by real artists. Such beautiful patterns, curves, motives and complicated designs – of course, only a professional artist can draw like this!
But, wait, didn’t you ever draw some background patterns while writing a diary? Or on a lesson, listening to a lecturer, and drawing something at the same time? Some funny images and patterns like these?
Of course, you did! And so did Maria, while she was writing a book. And she felt calmness, freedom, she didn’t think of anything at that moment, she was fully focused on the drawing, no unnecessary thoughts and worries… And after that, Maria and Rick created the Zentangle method – a new way of expression, where people can create amazing pictures by simply drawing some patters and curves.
In fact, anyone can master Zentangle images, because you don’t need any professional experience, you don’t need to follow proportions as in real life, you won’t need to master some hard techniques like watercolors or oils. A pencil, for a start, will be just enough.
The main advantages of the Zentangle method:
- use it to relax, to get rid of unnecessary thoughts, to find peace inside yourself.
- use it to improve your handwriting, to become creative, to unleash your fantasy and creative thinking.
- to learn many drawing techniques, for example, ethnic motives like Celtic knot patterns, Indian tattoos, African patterns, and to learn how to combine them together.
There are many other advantages of Zentangle, but the main thing – it’s that ANYONE, absolutely ANYONE can draw beautiful images using Zentangle!
