If I look at Panthe for too long it makes my eyes feel funny, but that’s partly why I like it! As you can see in the tutorial it’s based on the Pantheon Dome in Rome, which inspired me to try a circular tangle area for the first time.
Step 1. Draw a grid using double lines.
Step 2. Add crosses in the larger squares.
Step 3. Draw a small square around the centre of each cross
Step 4. Draw a larger square around the small one
Step 5 (optional). Fill in the sections where the grid lines overlap
Step 6 (optional). Add some shading.
I decided to have a play with this Tangle, see what else could be done with it. I tried starting off with a single-line grid rather than double.
Then a triple-line grid.
Adding in some extra squares.
And filling in certain sections.
It’s so interesting to me how little changes like that can really alter the look of a Tangle.
So what do you think of Panthe? Which is your favourite version? Let me know in the comments!
I like W2 because it reminds me of a Mothers Day present I made years and years ago. The one where you cut out two shapes, cut strips into them, and then weave them together to form a heart.
Mum still has the heart I made to this day.
At first I struggled with the set up of W2; I couldn’t wrap my head around the layout of the diamonds. But once I realised it was just a straight grid of squares on the diagonal I was sorted. I can turn my paper 45 degrees and draw the grid, then turn it back straight to add in the lines and finish it off.
