<3 Mandala Rock Art! Zen......
I love the idea of such an intricate design on such a plain surface. Pebble Drawings by New Zealand artist, Maria of MagaMerlina, who used a Faber-Castille black artist pen on the white pebbles and a Chinese brush pen with white ink on the darker rocks.
more painted rock ideas, we have many beach rocks we collected this fall at depoe bay, oregon, in the quiet of winter, a great time to paint!
What a great idea! ________________ LESSON 1: Objective- Students will practice the EoA onto river rocks using India inks. Focusing on line, shape, pattern, and rhythm. Consider having students work in a series so as not to finish too quickly. Discuss Henna and Indian artistry as inspiration. I actually collect stones from the different places we visit - ill have to have a go at this.

Pebble art gift idea.
Drawing on Stones We bought a couple of these years ago - they're lovely.
I enjoy this design because it reminds me of my recent travels to Turkey. I have a feeling my board is going to be heavily influenced by the time I spent there.. Or at least I'll experiment with Eastern Europe/ west Asian designs...
