For today’s session, I’ve jumped back down to the mid-bottom section of the painting.
I love playing with creating depth and dimension. Mostly I do this with coloring in shadows. Some of the shadows make sense (meaning I have a consistent shadow direction) others are put it because it feels like there should be a shadow there. For ‘shadow’ purists, this painting may cause some agitation.
For the green, purple and light blue sections, I wanted to create a flow of one into the other. To make that happen I burnished the colors in the same direction and added shading in the same areas of each. Then I made the shadow follow the same flow.
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?
