I recently discovered a number of videos on YouTube showing how to draw specific mandalas and thought it would be fun to share some of them with you. These short videos by Dearing Wang show you how to draw the Arq Mandala pattern.
And just for the fun of it a time lapse video of the Arq mandala drawing process:
According to Dearing Wang: “This pattern has an interesting underlying symmetry. It is defined by an overall 4 Fold symmetry formed by the 4 outer circles. Yet the centre has a 6 Fold symmetry. The big challenge was to connect the Inner with the Outer Form which was different in symmetry depending on the axis.”
If you’d like to download a copy of the Arq Mandala to color rather than attempt to draw it yourself, you can do so at: http://dearingdraws.shopdare.com/downloads/the-arq-mandala-colorsheet/
I look forward to your thoughts and comments!
