Zectangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Printable Zectangle Patterns for Beginners method is enjoyed all over this world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages. Easy steps to create! Draw a rectangle or use your paper as the frame. Use a pen and a pencil. No eraser! If you make a “mistake,” turn it into something in your tangle. Draw a “string” line (think of what a string looks like if you dropped it on your paper) or a zigzag line on your space. Use your pen to fill in sections with tangles (see examples or come up with your own!). Tangles come from patterns we see in the world – from nature to man made items: a rubber stamp collection, the bottoms of your shoes, your clothes, the dining room chairs, fancy woodwork, your pantry, garage…great patterns are everywhere. Use your pencil to shade your tangles. Turn your page as you work! Use text as an element within your tangle. Draw the text first if you choose this direction.
Printable Zectangle Patterns for Beginners
I’d seen this idea floating around and had noticed books at the library. Heather taught a couple meditative flower drawing patterns in Hibernate and I KNEW I wanted to learn more. I started researching meditative drawing and came across Printable Zectangle Patterns for Beginners. I was hooked, and overwhelmed. I wanted to learn but wasn’t sure where to start.
So I reserved all the Zectangle books in the New Brunswick library system, that’s the library we used when we lived on the Peninsula, and perused each one to decide which one I wanted to buy. I settled on One Zectangle A Day and have since discovered a few more resources which I review near the bottom of this post. I started doodling the beginning of June. I had no idea what I was doing. I have never considered myself an artist, and I’ve always said, “I can’t draw”. I’m sure some of you can relate to this.And what is so wonderful about Printable Zectangle Patterns for Beginners and other abstract drawing is that it’s not supposed to look like anything you can recognize and so you can’t draw it wrong (but you sure can draw it wonky, as I have experienced!). But now, I am drawing too. And there is something so satisfying to me about getting shading advice from my son, who’s drawing experience vastly outweighs mine. Zectangle is a pattern-based, abstract drawing technique. And if you want to get really picky about it, it’s done on square pieces of special paper called “tiles”. I don’t use square pieces of special paper. I use a high-quality, blank spiral-bound journal I inherited from Damien who used the first few pages for some doodling of his own.
