Nu al in de kerststemming

Nou, ik kreeg er gewoon zin in, ‘opgesloten’ zittend in een cel in de voormalige gevangenis Blokhuispoort in Leeuwarden: kerstbomen tekenen. Dus ik heb alle tijd om ze te scannen en af ​​te drukken op kaarten en ze op markten te verkopen. Een sneak preview…

  1. Janet,
    Your work is just beautiful! I am very curious about the tangle you used on the third tree. Can you share what the name of the tangle is and if there are any stepouts.
    Thank you very much.

      Susan, thank you so much! Unfortunately, I have no clue if it’s a named tangle or something I made up myself back then. Actually, I think I made it up. But I do know it’s actually quite simple to make:
      – First you draw the desired shape with a pencil (in this case a triangle).
      – Draw several circles here and there (I made them red in this case).
      – Draw an outline inside the shape with a pencil (or not, it’s not really necessary).
      – Draw the first line with a little curve on the end.
      – Then draw the next line and repeat. Use the pencil shapes as a guideline.
      – Remove the guidelines.
      – Add shading like you would on any other tangle.
      And of course, don’t forget to enjoy the process :-). Have fun!

      No, I don’t have a tutorial (yet), but I frequently get that question, so I just might. Thank you for your nice comment!

  2. Your trees are beautiful. I love each one. Do you give tutorials on how to draw gems? Thank you for sharing your beautiful talent. Nancy

    1. Thank you so much! I enjoyed drawing these trees very much. And a gem-tutorial? Well, I never thought about doing that, but I just might. Thank you for the idea :-).
