Greetings, my friends. If you want to start drawing mandalas, I’ll share all my simple techniques and steps with you! Even children can attempt to draw this mandala art for beginners with ease. The central, external, and deep zones make up the three main categories of simple mandala art.
Mandala Art’s Genesis
A mandala was originally a Buddhist religious symbol that was utilized in a number of rites and religious practices. A mandala represents the Universe and the holy realm as a symbol; as a multi-layered geometric figure, it shows a complicated system of equally spaced elements that are closed into an integral system. Mandalas are a common component of art therapy methods because of their religious origins. A mandala is utilized as art because it has a specific aesthetic value, and every year it gains more and more popular among regular people.
You’ll need the following supplies to make a mandala:
- Box of watercolor paints by Artistro
- an ink pen in black
- an artistic compass
- an eraser and a brush (from Artistro watercolor set)
- the ruler
- a remover
- drink some water
How To Draw A Mandala Art, Step by Step
This mandala art for beginners tutorial begins with several common fundamental components: Draw two lines that intersect at a 90-degree angle in the middle of the paper sheet (the location you previously marked) to create a cross. In order to divide each quadrant of this cross in half, draw two additional lines through the middle of the cross.
Any mandala painting comprises numerous circular components, hence the following stage involves actively using a drawing compass in the process. Draw 6 circles from the center of the image using a drawing compass, progressively enlarging the radius of each circle.
It’s time to begin immediately making mandala patterns. While seasoned artists can use a black marker right away, beginners are advised to start with a lead pencil for this phase. All the circles should be traced with a black marker. The first central circle should be outlined with a strong black line, and the second should be shaded with vertical lines. Make a double semicircle design on the fourth circle and leave the following two circles plain.
Create the pattern parts of the fifth circle crosswise as you slowly work your way from the center of the image to its edge: first, draw a petal-shaped semicircle on the upper guideline, then one on the bottom, and finally on the right and left side. The mandala will become symmetrical if the space between them is then filled in with related pieces. This method makes it incredibly simple to produce unique mandala designs. You can create your own design by selecting original ideas from the list of simple subjects that we have provided.
Place sharp double petals inside each sector of the sixth circle to create the elements of the sharp petals. Then outline a chain of minuscule semicircles that surrounds the fifth circle’s primary petal row.
Draw a droplet originating from the center of each sector inside each petal of the fifth circle to decorate the mandala. Then, place a bundle of three interconnected droplets at the intersection of the petals along the outer edge of the sixth circle. Don’t forget to thoroughly erase all supplementary pencil lines. The mandala sketch is finished at this point; the coloring is all that is needed. Such a design can be used as an adult coloring page; a printable mandala is ideal for this purpose.
Leave the first and third circles as-is (unpainted paper), and paint the second and fourth circles’ bases yellow. With orange watercolor, draw the third circle, deepening the color just a little on the edge. The fourth circle should be painted green, and the third circle red for the outer lace chain (small semicircle design). The fourth circle should have an orange tint with a base color of yellow.
Continue painting circles from the mandala’s center out to its corners slowly as you go. Use blue watercolor (as the base color) and add a few droplets of a darker color to the edges of each petal for the fifth round.
You may create the gradient effect seen in the image above by adding a drop of a different color to the base paint while it’s still wet.
The last, sixth circle of the mandala should be painted with a light purple tint. As a complementary hue, use a deeper purple and drop it at the edge of each petal to make a gradient.
Finish coloring the mandala by applying lilac to the outer droplet decorations of the sixth circle. Alternately, light green and yellow should be used to color the additional chain of tiny flowers on the fifth circle. Additionally, for decoration, add tiny swirls on the petals of the fourth circle and radial rays extending from the corners of each petal.
From top to end I am sure you will learn this Mandala Art for Beginners.
