Today [7/11/09] it was all about the mandala background. Up until now they were a pronounced yellow, red, and blue. Now it’s time to tone them down a little bit by dabbing white over each background section.
This photo shows a section of the yellow background that has been dabbed with titanium white. I used a fan brush to get a more speckled look.
A larger view of the lighter yellow background.
In this photo you can make out more of the speckled white over the light red background. Notice that the white is overlapping sections of the mandala…it’s okay the plan was to go back over each section. With each layer the painting develops more depth and shape.
Here’s a larger view of the lighter red background.
This full view photo shows the 2 lighter yellow sections, and the upper lighter red section. Notice the bottom red background section is darker than the upper red background.
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?
