I continue to focus on the mid-to-bottom section of the painting.
In this close-up view, you can see where I added the gold donut-like shape. I wanted to create a mixed illusion of either the round blue circle being above the gold shape or that the gold shape really has a hole in it and that you’re looking through to the blue section which covers from the right of the gold shape all the way to the left of the green dented shape.
To give the green dented shape a little more depth, I colored in a shadow into the wheat-colored area. In warmer colored sections, I use prismacolor black cherry to create the shadow and then color over it with the color(s) that were beneath it. In this case I colored the wheat-colored section prismacolor yellow ochre, goldenrod and canary yellow.
My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
