Of all the tangles I’ve learned so far, this is my absolute favourite. For me, this is exactly what zentangle is all about; you do the simplest thing (draw a straight line) over and over again, get into that meditative zone where the time just flows by, and end up with something stunning.
The tutorial can be found here. Although I actually struggled to understand it; I only got it once I tried turning the paper 90 degrees after every line.
Paradox can be structured like this:
Or a bit more random, like this one:
I personally prefer the structured one, but that’s just who I am.
I love that optical illusion of arrows pointing in and out, and curves made out of straight lines. Even though I know full well that it’s made of straight lines in 3- or 4-sided shapes, I still can’t help but see the curves. It’s brilliant!
