Centre Square is een mooie tangle die vele mogelijkheden biedt. Ik wilde in deze challenge dit motief eens in het rond tekenen. Ervoor heb ik een rechthoek getekend waar ik eerst met oranje aquarelverf een beetje kleur heb aangebracht. Het kader werd gevormd door Drogon. Binnen het kader heb ik een lintje getekend en als laatste heb ik een variatie op het leuke patroontje Eca-lin getekend. Deze tangle en nog vele anderen heb ik gevonden op de site: www.elatorium.de (beslist de moeite) Ik heb hier een zwarte pen, een witte gelpen en een oranje kleurepotlood gebruikt.

Centre Square is a nice tangle and it has a lot of possibilities. Today, I ‘ve chosen to draw this pattern in the round. In front of “the circle”, I have drawn a rectangle on which I painted orange watercolor. I’ve made a border with Drogon. Inside the rectangle, I just have drawn a simply ribbon. To finish I have added a variation on the lovely pattern Eca-lin, which I have found on www.elatorium.de. You can discover many beautiful patterns on this website. I ‘ve used  a black pen, a white gelpen and an orange pencil.

    There is something so inviting about the dangle on the end of the ribbon in the orange tile, very whimsical:) I love the orange and the way you interpreted this challenge by layering the Centre tangle in the background. Beautiful work!

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Jill, it is so nice to give and to receive comments. I love just black and white but I like colored tiles also, it is always a difficult choice, so, this time I have tried to make a piece just in black and white and the other part in colors, I’m glad you like the result.

      Thank you Sandra. There are so many possibilities to create new tiles, we never have to follow the exact pattern, there can always be variation and that is what I like in this drawingstyle!

    Origineel, Centre Square in een cirkel! Mooi gedaan, ook in combinatie met ‘de voorgrond’.

    You’ve outdone yourself this week. The ’tile’ within the circle creates such a lovely contrast.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      I’m very glad that you like this tile. The circle has given me a lot of work to finish. The rectangle was finished in very little time. I’m fond of orange, this color makes me happy. Unfortunately it is not the right color for me to wear but I like it in the house and on my tiles!

    Wat een zonnige tile, heel speciaal. Lijkt me een hele inspanning Ria ? Eca-lin is een mooie tangle. Kende ik niet. Dank voor de tip. Ik zal de website zeker meermaals bezoeken.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Ja Maddy, het rechthoekje was direct af maar de cirkel dat was een heel gedoe. Toch wilde ik absoluut deze “vierkante tangle” eens proberen in het rond.
      Eca-lin is een tangle van Annette Plaga. ALs je hem iets groter tekent, kun je er gemakkelijker meer lijntjes rond tekenen, wat eigenlijk mooier is. Elatorium is beslist de moeite hoor. Bedankt voor je snelle reactie.
