I’m Del, a Welsh girl who has been living abroad in South Africa for the past few years. I have many creative hobbies and one of them is doodling. I recently picked up some adult coloring books and was so enthused by how relaxing the process was (and following encouragement from friends) that I decided to draw some art by myself for other people to color.
For the mandalas, I draw patterns and scan them onto the computer. I use Photoshop to flip and copy them into a full circle, so that the patterns repeat almost perfectly.
For the doodles, I draw straight onto paper with black ink pens, and let the imagination flow. I don’t start with any pre-conceived ideas, I just draw a central shape and then build up shapes and patterns around it. I use a thicker 0.5mm pen for the main shapes, and then fill in detail with a finer 0.3mm nib. The doodling itself is just as relaxing as the coloring-in afterwards!
I provide the full-size files for free download, all at 600DPI and high resolution for high printing quality so that anyone can download, print and color my art for free, and hopefully find it as relaxing as I do.
