We Have Often Seen,

adult colouring books,

offered for sale, which have suddenly become the new craze, with over 12 million colouring books sold in 2015,

if you have bought and enjoyed one of them, be prepared to go to a new level,

 and look at the work of UK-based artist Asmahan A. Mosleh,

 she spends 8 to 54 hours on a single mandala,

unbelievably she works straight from inception to completion, often gilding with gold leaf, each work starts with a pencil outline which she then traces in pen, and are finally painted, pearls of paint are added as final details that give the circular paintings a bit of texture, she publishes photos of her intricate works on her Instagram page, @murderandrose, absolutely amazing.
