Mandala drawing 46 by Mandala-Jim Mandala drawing 46 by Mandala-Jim
Steadtler fineliners 56cm on 60cm square bristol board

Just a big doodle this one.. no unconscious desires or ideas I think :)

I've started colouring it already :)

Enjoy colouring Mandalas? Check out my book here: www.amazon.com/The-Mandala-Col… Also available from other Amazon.xx Thx!

But this is for those of you that like the original b&w drawings..

Hope you like it .. :)

I know the feeling... when it just doesn't seem to want to work and the closer you get to done the more you want to be done...

Coloured one is nearly finished.. it's taking me longer than any other one I've submitted

Sometimes things work out that way. I am just finished my very first commission and that took me longer to color than the one I did by mouse. Regardless though I feel it is still going to be a very beautiful piece.
