Brandywine Revisited

Brandywine is an intricate tangle that was inspired by a wood carving I saw. It was so lovely I had to deconstruct it so I could use it in my tangles. The steps are posted  below. You can copy and paste the big picture if you want a reference photo to print out. Take your time and have fun.

Brandywine steps

This is the trickiest part. These 's' shaped lines go down from one line and then run alongside the next line. Do all the lines in one direction and then do the ones on the other side. Flip your paper if you are more comfortable.

Connect the remaining lines. These start at the end of the lines and go down parallel to the lines you already have and stop when they meet the next line.

Add small petal shapes.

Add as many details as you wish.

Shade and sign.


  1. Absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to perfect this. I'll send you my piece when I've got this down, but there's no way it will be as good as yours.
