DIVA Challenge #117 Schway

It's time to try another official tangle for this week's DIVA challenge.  Schway was created by Rick Roberts, of Zentangle Inc. and is a very straight line pattern.  I hesitated trying this one, so I was glad that it was the challenge this week because it gave me that extra little nudge I needed.  It's kind of a fun little pattern, that I will play with more as I can see lots of room for variation.  It also has a very M.C. Escher feel to it, where the same image is going in two directions and your eye either sees one or the other.  I love how this tangle pattern was deconstructed to very few lines that create something that looks complicated, the true beauty of Zentangle!  Thanks, Rick for another tangle pattern, and Laura for another challenge!

  4. I love your tile and the Escher picture is fascinating, horses coming and going instead of arrows.
