I am excited to share my book. Unable to find patterns
that I could easily draw and teach to beginners working with pens and wood
burning tools on gourds, I decided to create my own! This book is for the
gourd artist, the tangler and the doodler. I take you you step-by-step through
the process of drawing twenty-five original patterns created with a simple
square or triangle grid. They are unique because they can be easily wood
burned on gourds or wood. I also share my shading technique to give your
patterns more depth on paper. Using my easy drawing method you can improve
your drawing skills while creating interesting patterns that will enhance
your doodling and tangling projects. These patterns can be translated to
work with any media.
Once you learn the patterns, you may use them as borders
or fill any shape with them and watch the wonderful effect they have on your
the patterns are drawn in a grid of squares or triangles. Then you add a few
lines and when the pattern is repeated you get a design that looks complicated.
pattern is given a page which includes directions,examples and tips on using
the pattern on different surfaces.
also have a chapter on how to use my patterns in an abstract composition such
as those found in zentangling. I include my method of shadowing and shading
to givemy patterns more depth. Included are many great composition tips for
chapter introduces the world of gourd art and talks about buying gourds,cleaning
them and the tools all beginners should consider.
