Tangle of the week: Cadent

We’re looking at another of my very early Tangles today, one of the first five I learned (the exact order gets a bit hazy after the first two).

You can find a step out for Cadent, using squares in the starting grid, here.

I prefer to start my Cadent with circles, but the premise is exactly the same.

With better shading than I can manage, it can look pretty trippy, like an Escher painting where you can’t tell what the top layer is or which way is up.

I’m still working on my shading. Maybe one day I’ll be good enough to bend people’s minds πŸ˜‰

So what do you think of Cadent? Do you prefer circles or squares to start? Let me know in the comments!

  1. The first thing I saw is a nose. I’d focused in on the top left corner – but once I’d taken in the rest of the pattern the beauty exploded on the page.
    What a GREAT pattern … and with the shading it does, as you say, become very Escher!

    I think out of all the ones I’ve seen you do so far, this one is my favourite.

    1. Maybe a little patience, but less than some Tangles. Paradox is my favourite, but it does take a loooooong time! The good thing is it’s relaxing and a kind of meditation, so taking a long time can actually be good πŸ™‚
