A wonderful new tangle with so many possibilities to” fill” the inside. I have chosen a Renaissancetile and used a sepia micron-pen. I filled the inside with Squid and Sez, drawn with a black pen and colored with ordinary colorpencils. To finish, I have drawn N’Zeppel on the background with a chalkpencil and made some highlights with a white gellypen.

Een prachtige nieuwe tangle die  verschillende mogelijkheden geeft om te “vullen”. Ik heb een Renaissancetile genomen waarop ik Way-bop getekend heb met een sepiakleurige pen. Daarna heb ik in het patroon  Squid en Sez getekend met een zwarte pen en gekleurd met gewone kleurpotloden. Vervolgens heb ik N’Zeppel getekend op de achtergrond met een wit krijtpotlood. Tenslotte werd hier en daar nog een accent gelegd met een witte gelpen.

    Beautiful colors and tangles! Way Bop is tricky but you made it so nicely!

      Thank you Anita, indeed it is a tricky tangle but a nice one and now with your circle it will become more easier to draw.
      Have a nice week and keep on tangling.

    This tile is soooo lovely, Ria! Your color choices are so complementary to your tangles, line art, and shading. It’s a fantastic piece!

    I, like Susan, love everything about it. The colors are fantastic and an inspiration to pull out a Renaissance tile! (Mine just always seem so blah.) Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I know that you were sad and reluctant to put down your pens just a couple months ago, but are now back to drawing beautifully. I’ll try to keep this in mind, dear Ria!

    Everything about this tile is wonderful … color and composition. Especially love the pattern added behind Waybop. Adds depth and interest.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Melissa. I don’t find Waybop an easy tangle to draw, but both Sez and Squid are nice and very easy tangles, exactly what I needed to “fill” my Waybop, I’m glad you like the result.

    Ohhh! I just LOVE this! Fantastic colour! I’ve never tried Squid… I always thought it would be hard. This tile makes me smile! 🙂

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Deanne, When I use colorpencils, I always like the results more on tan tiles and about Squid: this is really an easy tangle,much easier than Waybop!

    Beautiful, this tile is a dazzler:) I love the way Squid off sets the Waybop!

      Merçi Chantal, Waybop est un motif pas directement facile mais avec beaucoup de variations pour faire de belles compositions et après quelques exercises, ça va!

    I love the interwoven look of your tile, it is so beautiful. Great choice of colours, too.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thanks Heike, I like to draw on these tan tiles, the colours are always a bit brighter and I like to use a white chalkpencil. I’m glad you like my tile, but you know, I like yours too.

    Such a beautifully composed piece, Ria. Those knots are so smooth and seamlessly joined. I like that background in white too.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Vielen Dank Gudrun, aber ich habe auch deine Kachel angeschaut und finde es eine wunderschöne Komposition mit eine ganz tolle Waybop, ein bischen versteckt, sehr original gemacht!

    Gorgeous. Your tile reminds me of the details in old illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages.

      Thank you Karen, that is a wonderful compliment you gave me. I didn’t see it that way but I’m very happy with your words!!!

    Melena says:

    Ria, your Waybop tile is gorgeous. What a great use of the inside spaces, and the colors really set off the Waybop tangle wonderfully. Doing N’Zeppel in the background so very lightly definitely enhances the whole tile. It is all beautiful.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you very much Melena for this nice comment but you have also made a very nice interpretation of your Waybop in combination with a beautiful drawn Arukas and Knightspeek. I do like this tile very much.

    Wat een goed idee om deze tile zo samen te stellen. Deze tile met exact dezelfde Tangles zou ik nog wel eens samen met jou in de les willen doen…Wishful thinking? Je wit krijtpotlood gebruik ik vaak, ook om aquareltekeningen te accentueren. Merci Ria, zo mooi..

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Om die Waybop zo gelijkmatig te tekenen, heb ik wel wat moeten oefenen vooraleer dat lukte, dat geef ik graag toe. Squid daarentegen is dan weer heel gemakkelijk en eigenlijk vind ik dat toch een hele leuke tangle. En ja, die bolletjes, die teken ik dikwijls. Ik hou van Printemps, Tipple, Sez, Jetties enz… altijd leuk om plekjes mee op te vullen. Tof dat je dat wit krijtpotlood dikwijls gebruikt. Je kan er heel mooie accenten mee leggen. Ook met een witte gelpen kan je leuke effecten krijgen op een aquarelachtergrond. Misschien lukt het wel, als het beter weer wordt, om samen nog eens te tangelen. Bedankt voor je fijne commentaar Maddy.

      Thank you Kate. Colours on Rennaissance tiles always give a bit stronger colours than usual. I’m glad you like my tile.

    Wat ontzettend mooi, Squid achter Waybop!!!! Een ‘plaatje’ van een tile.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Op tankleurige tiles tekenen doet de kleuren altijd al een beetje beter uitkomen, vind ik en Squid is zo’n gemakkelijk patroon. Ik vond het ideaal om er Waybop mee op te vullen. Ik vind het fijn dat je het resultaat leuk vind en dank je voor je mooie commentaar.

      Thank you Susan, Waybop gives so many possibilites to “fill”, I have chosen for Squid, a very easy pattern, but a nice one and I’m glad you like the result.

    Wow Ria, this is beautiful with Squid in the centre. What a good idea- I love your tile much!

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Simone. I have drawn Way Bop only one time before and therefore I have chosen to use easy tangles. Squid gives always a nice result and it is also a pleasant tangle to draw.
