Star Mandala - first try



Do you remember I said I was taking a new class: how to draw mandalas?  This is my first attempt.

I wish I had started out with my markers  - I like the way they look.  But I began coloring with my pencils, like our instructor Guadalupe did.  Thing is, she had watercolor pencils!  When you paint your mandala, she suggests starting at the center and working your way out.

This flower template that Guadalupe gave us I changed into a star!  And I used regular printer paper instead of the 140 lb watercolor paper, that kept getting stuck in my printer.  Maybe my printer is too old, or it could be the paper's too thick... 

Week Two coming up!

This looks great! I like what you did!
I love watercolor pencils! They are definitely worth owning. I often use them on cards when I free-hand some parts.

I love mandalas... partly because they appeal to my spiritual nature, and partly because their kaleidoscopic patterns appeal to the little girl in me!

You did an amazing job on your first attempt, Deb! Can't wait to see another one someday!
