Take a moment to reconnect with yourself with these mindful mandala paintings.
All of nature is permeated by a hidden geometric creative power. From the spiral growth of ferns, fractal branching systems in trees, and symmetries in leaves and flowers: everything in nature is connected and follows universal principles.
In this exquisite book, artist Kathleen Hoffman shares her fascination with mandalas, sacred symbols such as the triskelion and the labyrinth, and nature’s endless wonder, through a collection of 12 step-by-step painting projects, accessible to painters of all abilities. Hoffman begins with the basic techniques of acrylic painting and then builds on this with each project, showing new design elements that are used in her pictures and how she implements them in terms of colour and composition.
Kathleen Hoffmann is an artist, illustrator and graphic designer with a degree in communication design. In addition to her projects as a graphic designer, she has worked as a picture book illustrator and painter in animation films. Kathleen discovered her creativity in her earliest childhood among the plants and flowers of the family-run nursery and the vegetable beds of her grandparents. She has been living with her family on the Baltic Sea since 2020 and devotes herself increasingly to her own artistic work.
Each project in the book is broken down into sections with accompanying photography to help you along. With clear step-by-step instructions you can recreate these projects or use elements of each to make your own unique pieces in no time at all!
