Yeah! Today I’m back to painting the Bangles Mandala. I spent my time fine-tuning the 4 darker yellow shapes; 2 in the upper left section, 2 in the lower right section. I used cad. yellow and dioxazine purple for these shapes, with a little titanium white for the highlight.
Since it’s a little more difficult to detect the difference of the fine-tuning, unless you go back and look at previous photos, I’ve provided a before and after view. Here’s the before:
Here’s after the fine tuning. I made the edges crisper, made the lower left sides darker (to provide more contrast), and added a little more shadow along the long right side to make it look like it’s embedded in the frame.
Here’s a view of one of the lower right darker yellow shapes.
Stepping back a little, I took this photo of the pair of yellow shapes that are in the lower right section of the mandala. The poor quality of this photo makes it look like the yellow/purple shape on the left was painted with different colors than the one on the right. They are both painted the same. The different color backgrounds may be altering the coloration.
Here’s the full view. Tomorrow it’s on to the yellow diamond shapes.
