Mindful Mandala drawing / painting

Mandala on canvas with watercolor

This is an experiment and see how the watercolor paint would work on canvas and since this canvas already had a mark of blue paint on it I decided to record myself creating a mandala.

I used a Sharpie marker so that the paint wouldn’t smear the lines. Each section of the mandala added has a specific meaning to me – it’s part of my mindfulness practice using mandalas 🙂

This took an hour to complete, so this video is obviously a time-lapse of the entire thing… I really enjoy watching myself creating art in a video – it’s such a different perspective and I notice things I didn’t realize I was doing. I can see how I move my hands when creating a line, or how I move the marker back and forth while thinking about what line to add next.
