“Bangles” Day 28

[I’m 13 days behind in posting this]

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.

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.

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.
