“You CAN learn how to draw amazing mandalas (even if you’re no good at drawing!)
“Learning how to draw mandalas is less about drawing more about slowing down and opening up to your inner creative and intuitive flow.
“It’s a simple, reflective, repetitive creative practice is super good for your brain, your heart and your soul.
“How To Draw Mandalas. Even if you can’t draw:
“We’ll start with a uber-simple little Mandala so you can see how it works:
Draw a small circle.
Think of it as a compass. Add triangles that point to North, South, East and West.
Add triangle points in between North, South, East and West. Now you’ve got 8 spaces to play with… these are your 8 Slices Of Pie.
Add a circle to the end of each triangle. Now you’re starting to see how it works…
Keep building it! Every time you add something to your Mandala, add it to each of the 8 Slices Of Pie. You can add circles, domes, triangles, squares, lines, waves and outlines… and play with different ways of doing circles, domes, triangles, squares, lines, waves and outlines. You can also make up secret symbols, totally break the rules or do anything else you want to do – it’s YOUR Mandala.”
Mixed Media Mandala Acrylic Painting by Lori’s Laboratory is today’s video tutorial. According to Lori: “This is a process video for a mixed media mandala painting (almost zen doodle like!) utilizing Dye-na-Flow inks, modeling texture paste, acrylic paints and Posca paint pens. Lots of trial and error here, but I think it came through at the end! Join me for some mixed media art fun! 🙂 New videos posted at least once a week, with new blog posts up Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I hope to see you around!”
