Shading Basics

Part of Creative Pattern Tangling is shading your artwork. I prepared a quick summary covering the basics of shading tangles with graphite pencil. Click the images below for a full-screen view. A printable version will be available at the end of this journey.

In this exercise, we will explore individual patterns on a regular basis: Shading options and applying the principles of Creative Pattern Tangling. Join in the fun, become a member of our Facebook group to receive feedback on your shading journey and share your artwork and ideas with fellow tanglers!
