the first week of January we went to the Groeninge museum in Brugge. And of course I was looking carefully at the paintings of the old dutch masterpainters to see if there were elements that could inspire new tangles. There were many ! In image of juwelery, fabrics ,windows, floortiles, carpets and so on.
today i show you the first I have worked out.
this is the painting: flowerbouquet in a blue vase from Bruegel. (painting normally belongs to collection of kunsthistorisch museum Vienna)
click the picture to see the wonderful details of the painting.
I was facinated by the pattern on the vase. I had to work on it for a while ,simplified the shape a little an came up with this thangle:
the name? I needed a working tittle to save the file and saw kind of a u shape ,so in the beginning i just ment dubble u’s. But then without the accent
it seamed like a game: dubble us everytime again and again until the string is filled.
it is really necessary to focus while drawing : to keep track of the shape, to keep the shape all the same size; But who minds if they are a little different, after all there are no mistakes .
