How to Draw Mandalas
A downloadable project
This comprehensive booklet will talk you through how to draw beautiful mandalas, from the very basics through to more detailed finishing flourishes. No drawing experience necessary - worksheets are included to get you practicing, as well as re-usable template sheets that you can print out over and over to work with. You can either print the pages and draw onto them by hand, or you can work digitally e.g. on an iPad with an Apple Pencil, or in something like Krita with a drawing tablet and pen (or with the mouse if you're feeling brave!).
The booklet covers everything from talking about different pens and papers, hints and tricks to use when drawing, through to constructing simple repeating shapes up to more complicated circular patterns. Examples are provided throughout, with illustrations to both trace and copy, and template sheets for you to work on for drawing your original designs.
As well as developing a creative skill, working on the tutorials in this booklet provides a relaxing experience as you focus on repetitive shape drawing. Working through one of the worksheets will take 20 - 30 minutes, so it's a great opportunity to take a breather and work on something creative.
ADDENDUM - I've now published the digital version of my pattern references booklet. It has hundreds of pattern variations, and pages of empty templates to draw on. It's the perfect companion to this workbook, and you can find it here > https://screwylightbulb.itch.io/mandala-inspirations :)
