Take your dotting technique to the next level- just Swoosh it!


Hand-painted swooshes and swirls are the next level of dotting technique.

They are actually dots with little tails, like tadpoles or sperms ....yes, I said sperms. 

In this course I will take you through methodical and crystal clear steps, using practice worksheets (as I always do in my courses) and show you the way to free your hand, and easily paint Swooshes and Swirls with a brush. 

Freehand swooshes and swirls, painted with a brush 

are a step further in obtaining freedom and gaining more control of your painting hand. They are a deeper step into the meditative state of mind and a joyous, playful feeling- once properly controlled and executed. 

The joy you will get from freely swooshing will make you smile! I promise you! 


However, to swoosh easily, as we will learn in this course, you need to have a certain level of confidence handling a brush and dotting with a brush. 

If you have never dotted with a brush before, or if you are not yet confident with your brush when dotting, I recommend you to first sign up for my other course- 


“How to Dot your Mandala with a Brush”

and come back to this course once you have mastered it.

The main reason to first learn how to properly dot with a brush is that in my brush dotting course I teach the basics of paint mixing, how to get to the right consistency of the paint and recognize it, as well as how to brush-load correctly. These two chapters are not repeated in this course and are fundamental to it.

Being a self-taught dotter and freehand swoosher, I understand the need to have a clear and systematic step-by-step learning process. 


I have created a learning system that breaks up the process into little pieces and enables a gradual and thorough comprehension of each of those steps for you. 


The steps not only need to be understood but also assimilate into the body, just like when learning how to drive. So, repetitions of these particular brush strokes are essential and are therefore practiced thoroughly in this course. 

It’s not all hard work, it is actually quite FUN, 

and, as usual, in my courses, you get to learn being surrounded by beautiful, relaxing music and soft guidance.

Also, you will come out of this course with no less than 4 painted art pieces through which you will learn: 

  1. Freehand SWIRLS and SWOOSHES,
  2. My VELVET DOODLE Technique, 
  3. Introduction to PEARLY DOTS, 
  4. Working with Iridescent and metallic paints.
  5. Introduction to color blending.


In addition:

  1. You will become a part of an only members Facebook group, where you will join other students of this course, share your progress and get some reliable friends. 
  2. You'll get access to a weekly Q&A live session with me. 



This course is for you if:

  • You are familiar with BRUSH dotting and are able to control it.
  • You are able and willing to dedicate your time for practice.
  • You wish to learn and enjoy painting freehand swirls and
  • swooshes.
  • You desire to expand your mandala painting options.
  • You want to gain an even deeper meditative and
  • mindful state while painting. 



Hi, My Name is Liona and I am a self-taught Dot-Master.




I have been creating and selling mandala art and related articles for the last 4 years. In total, I have been living off my painting art for the past 20 years (since 1999). 


I got into mandala painting coincidentally when I was preparing hand-made gifts for my vocal students and sought for a way to create those presents.

At first, since I only painted at night, I immediately noticed that my sleep had improved as I was falling into it readily and peacefully.

Later, when I made mandala-dotting a part of my daily routine I could see how it helped me relax and center.

Soon I realised I was thinking of absolutely nothing while dotting- my mind remained quiet for long. It became my only meditation habit (oh, I’m such a restless person and could never sit and meditate like everyone else).

I began listening to music, guided meditations and affirmations as well as audiobooks while painting. Shortly, I noticed how my whole life was changing- I felt more centered, calm, and able to handle life’s hassles and challenges.

I created my first online course and launched my website and blog in December 2019. Since then I have an on-going stream flow of new students, readers and followers who are joining my online creative family every day.

I feel blessed to be able to offer these courses and be a part of my students’ artistic growth.

While perfecting my particular techniques and precision, I focus my learnings on a wide range of valuable aspects that mandala dotting has to offer, and I happily share those with my students.

I just wanted to say how much I'm blown away by your course and I'm so glad that I'm doing it. The detail and the pace you go at is perfect for me. I have done a bit of dotting in the past and didn't like the result. I see now where the problems lie. I am grateful for your generosity in sharing all this information... ... I am very happy with the option to send you questions and to catch up on the recorded session. Your gentle speaking voice is very easy to follow. Again thank you for the wonderful course🙏
