A few months back a friend of mine was looking for books on mandalas and how to draw them. I remember that at the time I wasn’t particularly interested in them. I didn’t really know what they were.
I was originally misdirected to websites instructing me to draw a circle and fill it with any symbols I wanted. I’m not saying that this is incorrect in anyway, but it wasn’t the way for me.
Then I found the youtube video by “expressing the self” on growing mandalas. The instructions couldn’t be more helpful.
After my first attempt (above) I completely understand the whole, “draw it carefully” statement. If you’re not careful, the motifs would end up all over the place, and the mandala would become uneven.
In my next mandala I hope to incorporate more empty space as part of the design.
