A tip for drawing mandalas

MandalaMandalas are so relaxing. This is the start of a new mandala. A recent conversation on Instagram led me to this art tip:

Sometimes I do actually draw mandalas freehand. However, I often begin them by making guidelines in pencil. Using a compass, ruler, or other such instruments, I map out what I want to do. Then I ink it.

Speaking of Instagram, if you haven’t already, I invite you to follow me. I go by¬†@pensmudges there.
