Hamadox is een prachtige, veelzijdige tangle. Ik heb hem getekend in combinatie met een variatie op Hollibaugh en het recente leuke patroontje Soluna. Na het aanbrengen van de schaduw, vond ik de combinatie goed tot zijn recht komen en daarom heb ik deze keer bewust niet voor kleur gekozen. De patronen zorgen al voor voldoende contrasten. Het is een heel éénvoudige tekening zonder strings.

Hamadox is a wonderful tangle with many possibilites. I have drawn this pattern in combination with a variation on Hollibaugh and the lovely recent tangle Soluna. After shading, I liked the result and I didn’t choose this time to bring colours on the tile, the chosen patterns give already nice contrasts. It is a very simple work, I didn’t use a string.

    I especially love the hatching on the petals of Hamadox. It really makes it look like a wood cut!! Beautiful tile!

      Dank je wel Ilse, Hollibaugh is zo één van die tangles die je werkelijk met alles kunt combineren en waarop je veel variaties kan maken, één van mijn favorieten.

      Merçi Chantal, Hamadox est un motif qui semble difficile mais en effet c’est très facile, j’aime ce motif.

      Een heel éénvoudig werkje hoor Maddy zonder strings. Hamadox lijkt moeilijker dan het is, ik heb deze tangle geleerd van een u-tube filmpje. Gewoon intikken:” how to draw Hamadox” onder de google en dan zie je de verschillende mogelijkheden die voorgetekend worden.
      Ideaal weer om te tangelen. Alles is hier kil en grauw behalve binnen daar is het nu supergezellig.

    The row of Hamadox is so pretty with the wonderful combination of tangles. Your variation of Hollibaugh offers a nice contrast. As usual, beautifully done!

    Wat mooi, Hamadox van groot naar iets kleiner!! De andere tangles zijn er goed bij gevonden.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Dank je wel Annemarie. Eigenlijk heb ik gewoon twee strepen getrokken in potlood, deze in vakjes verdeeld zoals een ladder en dan per stuk Hamadoxjes erin getekend.

    This is really cool to look at. Each part is so different but they all together make a great picture.

    Jean Chaney says:

    Your Hamadox is quite nice, but the different style of Hollibaugh stole the show for me. I just love seeing tangles pushed in new directions, and I don’t think I’ve see this yet. Wonderful!

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Anita, in fact this was very simple: just draw two lines, make squares and draw the Hamadox inside. I’m glad you like my tile

    Ria, I like the way you did more than one Hamadox. And your tangleation of Hollibaugh is intriguing! I’ll have to give it a try! Nice tile!

    Hi Ria, thanks so much for your very nice remarks on my blog about my tiles. I appreciate it. Your tile here for the Diva’s challenge has me in a quandry of how you accomplished all those hamadox in a row like that. Looks like I will have to try that out to see if I can do it. Nicely organized and executed.

      Thank you for your nice comment Duane.
      When I’m not sure how to draw a certain pattern, I write down under google: “how to draw” and then the name of the pattern, here it was Hamadox. Very often, you will get a demonstration. I wish you good luck.

    This is a beautifully constructed tile and I love the way the motifs rest, on against the next. Very nice work. I tried to say this last time but it didn’t post everything I put. (And I didn’t check it before I clicked on post!)
