During my first session of color today, I continued to color in the lower mid-section.
In this close-up view, you can see where I added the orange and another green section. In coloring the orange section, I used prismacolor canary yellow and scarlet lake. I also gave it a more textured and flat appearance. The texture was created by using a circle stroke to put down the color. The shadow areas of the orange section, were created by coloring with prismacolor black cherry and then coloring over that with the yellow and scarlet lake.
In the green section, to give it a smoother appearance, I used a burnishing stroke (ie: I colored hard into the paper) and really blended the black grape, canary yellow and Copenhagen blue.
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?
