Colorful Mandala

Mandalas are circular art forms with designs emerging from the centre of the circle. The designs are repeated shapes, strokes, lines drawn in a patterned way around to fill up the circle.

Mandala is for me very relaxing. What I love best about this art form is that the designs aren’t preplanned. I dont know what colors to add, what shapes to draw, how big they will turn out, I just go with the flow of my mind.

It may look complicated but it is all about dividing the circle and filling each space up with patterns. Its that simple.

Sunset design

Here is a design I did for the love of the magical sunsets.

One of the things that excite me from the million others is sketchbooks. There are so many different kinds of art paper out there!!!

This one is done on canvas sketchpaper, for those of you who are familiar with it and think whats new!, I am a newbie to art so these are wonderful ‘discoveries’ for me.

This particular zentangle has been on my mind for sometime now, so I drew a rough sketch of it first.

I like how this turned out. I put it on Society6 and saw it come alive on

Throw pillows:)

I feel it looks like tribal art design. What do you think? If you want to get hold of this head to http://society6.com/product/bright-ray-of-hope_pillow
