A bit of a scribble done between yesterday and today: a freestyle mandala colored with Derwent Studio colored pencils. The colors used are actually quite a bit brighter than what shows here.
I was watching a fabulous YouTube video on How to Grow a Mandala (even the music was exquisite) and couldn't resist trying one. Such a peaceful video, and helpful.
This is only about 2", as that's all the time I had last night. I colored it this morning while procrastinating on other tasks. (An excellent way to avoid work)
What I enjoyed about this is that I never knew what was coming next. It builds as a kind of lovely surprise. And the same goes for the coloring process. Am enjoying working with mandalas, and they are giving me rug design ideas.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
My next Beginning Zentangle® class will be for a private group in October. That class is full.
I'll be teaching another beginning class at the Greenfield Community Center in the spring of 2019, date to be determined. They do not have a website so please call them for more information.
I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.)
Come and amaze yourself!
