Dune Grass Tangle

Dune Grass is a tangle I’ve been teaching since mid 2010.  In one of my first Zentangle classes we talked about creating new tangles and using inspiration from things around you and nature. In talking through it, we created: Dune Grass with inspiration being the sand dunes along the south shore of Lake Michigan.

As you draw Dune Grass feel the wind of the shore lightly blowing through your hair and a bit of mist from the waves lapping on the beach on your face!

Note – there is no shading on these. I was quite unsure on shading when I first started tangling in 2010.  I didn’t want to go back and shade these as it is part of my Zentangle journey and helps me see how my tangling has changed over time.

Enjoy! Think of the dune grass blowing in the wind on the lake shore as you tangle.
