triangle flower mandalaI am not a triangle fan. They’re too pointy and pokey for my liking. I, however, did not decide on the starting shape for this mandala. I let my daughter choose and she picked a triangle. I suppose it didn’t turn out too badly considering. I daresay I could have done a better job of evening it out as well so the middle is less disjointed feeling to me and yet it is what it is.

Chakra Mandala ~ watercolour and ink on watercolour paper.

I finally finished the Chakra Mandala and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I learned a lot about the best way to approach a mandala design in the future and I had such a wonderful time creating it.

Today I have been adding to my chakra mandala, working from the centre of the flower out to the edges of the paper.

In hindsight I should have drawn it within a circle on my paper but I wanted the sections to be as large as possible and so filled the square of water colour paper instead.

It’s been a wonderful experience to work on this piece. Each section relating to a different chakra and really speaking to me as I approach it with what it wants to look like.

Once she’s finished she’ll be available to buy from my website and with any luck I will be making some cards from prints of her too if she complies with my request. She gives me that feeling of rightness when I concentrate on the spiral centre and guides me into peace.
