About This Class

Join me to discover the beauty of a Botanical Mandala Design.

In this class, I will show you how I get started with drawing and painting a botanical mandala.

A botanical mandala can be a single flower design such as a rose or daisy or use various botanical motifs to create a more structured design (which is what we will focus on in this class)

  • How to create a basic 8-point Mandala Framework
  • How to draw out your Mandala design adding your Botanical Motifs
  • Adding color using Watercolor
