Mandalas

Mandala art to me represents the perfection in geometry combined with exquisite creativity of the human mind and heart.

Drawing Mandalas

After laying out my circle (usually giving it 8 points) I start at the center drawing designs, patterns, and pictures that come to mind as I draw. Drawing a mandala is relaxing, almost meditative and it’s quite easy to lose track of time while drawing. My goal is that each drawing is beautiful whether I use color or black pen and pencil.

I add a 3D effect using pencil – as in the photos below.

These photos are completed mandalas. I used black pen to draw, then pencil for shading.
