Pick 8 colours that go well together in your opinion. Use the middle size pattern and the biggest circle.

Start with the lightest colour and do 7 rounds with the circle. Pick a new colour and do 6 rounds.

Continue in this pattern 7 rounds - 6 rounds -7 rounds - 6 rounds etc. until you meet the colour you started with.

The end result will be something like this. This needs a little practice - take your time and try different colours and combinations. The most important thing: Have fun!

Now you can draw more and more patterns and combine them: You can create greeting cards or visual statements or actual artworks!
