When I first started colouring, I didn’t think much of mandals, I preferred to colour in landscapes or pictures of specific things or scenes.  Colouring in mandals which are often random designs just didn’t appeal, and I didn’t understand why so many people enjoy colouring in random patterns.  That was until one day I tried out a mandala design as it was part of a colouring-in part work I used to buy.  I couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed it and how much fun I’d been missing out on.  Something about the circular design of a mandala makes colouring them in so calming.  They are magical, continuous, infinite and I hope you like my little bit of colouring below.

The following image comes from the colouring book Mandalas (Creative Colouring for Grown-ups) which is published by Michael O’Mara and while the very background colour of the mandalas are coloured in within the book, the rest of the design is entirely up to you.  I enjoy this particular design due to the slightly tribal look to it.  I felt a mexican vibe when colouring in this and made it very loud in colour. 😀   I especially adore celtic knots which the central pattern is sort of.  What do you think? 🙂
