Tiny Mandalas

When I want to do simple art while having my feet up on the couch, and for once I don't feel like doing patterns or grid drawings, I grab my little Canson 180 sketchbook and draw and colour tiny mandalas.

I like having specific (sketch)books for specific purposes, mostly because over time it leads to books filled with a similar type of art and that just gives me some peace of mind somehow. I like the thought of filling one tiny sketchbook with tiny mandalas. It's like building your own tiny collection.

Here's six mandala's for you. Did I mention they were tiny?  ;-)




As you can see, for extra balance I like to use the same colour scheme on either side of the spread. It makes the little book even more coherent. And if you're wondering how tiny they are, they measure less than three inches (7 cm to be exact) in diameter.

Hope you are treasuring something tiny yourself and wishing you a wonderful and artsy day!

  1. I love the idea of tiny sketchbooks and using them on the coach , did you made these out of your imagination ? Using the same colour scheme gives indeed a good result .

    1. Ze ontstaan gewoon terplekke. Ik begin in het midden en werk naar buiten toe en zie wel wat er van komt. :-)

  2. You know I love your Tiny Mandalas, and appreciate the color pairings. I have a tiny moleskine-type book; perhaps I shall delve into tiny mandalas!!

I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
