About a new flower kolam inspired piece of art : PRINT

I'd like to share with you a new piece of art inspired to kolam - it is in fact kolam inspired, rather than mandala. I like to discover the harmonical way the spiral meet each other...

The artwork looks gorgeous, Adelec! I enjoyed the first one as well. Just curious, how did you make it. How are these pretty swirls that we see in the design made? I mean, what medium do you use? Smile

Hi everybody and thank your for your comments.
It's all handmade Smile then I put a border using a pc software Smile
First of all, I used a goniometer to mark the points for the petals. Then colored the petals with water-feltpen (Stabilo water feltpens - they have wonderful gradations!) and used a small brush to water them. Then, with a golden gel-pen, drew the small swirls of the petals and after this I marked the borders with a black gelpen. At the end, I shadowed all the petals with a pencil.
I'm fascinated by the spirals and the way they are constructed. I saw them in kolams as well, done without goniometer, and I'm experimenting with them.
I'm happy to share points of views with you, so keep on comment!
Love is the answer
