How to draw a basic flower mandala

I remember when I first discovered the beautiful Mandala Art. I was out alone in a beautiful cabin, in the woods, coloring. And as I was turning the pages of the adult coloring book I had, I wondered about the drawing technique and I couldn’t wait to be back home to start experimenting.
Youtube helped me a lot as I found a number of tutorials that were useful to me. But what helped me be who I am today is the daily practice. Mandala art became my life, became the breath I take every morning.

I started this blog a few months ago, with the beginning of confinement. I was locked down at home, and I couldn’t proceed with my weekly meditative art workshops and I wanted to stay in touch with my followers and my students and I thought that everyone would appreciate free tutorials. So I started my YouTube channel and my blog. 

The design I have prepared for you today is a simple yet very beautiful Mandala design. As they say in french ” C’est dans la simplicité que se trouve la beauté”.
This design is perfect for beginners as the Mandala grid is simple, made with only 4 different circles, and the grid sections are wide and the shapes chosen are easy.

Few things to keep in mind when drawing a Mandala:

  1. A mandala consists of a number of circles organized around one center
  2. Always start drawing from the center out.
  3. Finish each line before passing to another row.
  4. Always have a compass, a protractor, a pencil, a ruler and a fine drawing pen by your side.

This simple Mandala tutorial is divided into seven easy steps.
But before heading to the steps let’s start by tracing a mandala grid.
