I really like the swirly layers on this one. The outer layers seem a bit plain, though I like the flowers okay. Wish I would have done something a bit more detailed on the outer leaves, but I’ll try to remember that for next time.
This one definitely has lots of details for coloring. It’s always interesting to see how different the mandalas look on the blog versus in Procreate. I like the inner layers and the flowers on the outer leaves.
This mandala was another experiment. Rather than focusing on coloring, I was trying to focus on different design elements – especially the big lotus-type flower in the middle. I like how it turned out, though I’m not sure the overall style is something that appeals to me enough to pursue it further.
More zentangle practice. I like all the curves and swirls in this one. The black around the inner layers is a bit too heavy, but other than that, I’m happy with it.
Can’t believe this is mandala number 70. I tried a lot of different/new things in this one, so it’s not as cohesive as I’d like. I like the inner layers and the outer ones. The middle – meh. But it’s done! 😛
Still playing around with various zentangles and doodles to fill in spaces so they are intricate enough for coloring. Not sure I like the brick pattern, but I’m happy with the rest of it. And as I head for 70 mandalas, I’m amazed that even though it sometimes feels like I’m drawing the same thing over and over, it never turns out the same. 😀
I’m really digging how this one turned out. I like the lighter inner flowers contrasted with the darker outer layer. And, of course, now that I’m seeing it posted, I see a mistake I should fix. Ah, well, ’tis the sad unfinished life of a creative. 😛
Things have been crazy the past few weeks and sadly drawing has been shoved to the side while other more pressing matters are dealt with. Sundays are nice – I get a chance to sit down for a bit and draw. I draw on my iPad while my husband watches football. This mandala looks fun to color – I’ll have to try it and see.
Another zentangle inspired mandala. It’s always amazing to me that even after all this time, even when it feels like I’m drawing the same design elements over and over, the finished mandalas all end up looking different. It’s almost like magic. 😛
