Creating a Mandala; Part 1

Thought it would be interesting to show a mandala being created in stages.

From time to time I will post the progress of the design, then the coloring process until completion.

We begin with the basic circle drawn on the paper.  Mandala, in sanskrit, roughly translates as "circle."
Then measure to find the center of the circle and mark it with a dot. 

Now it's time to begin.
