Today I’m back on track and painted quite a bit of the red areas; mainly the red shapes on the right side of the mandala and the two red triangles (top/bottom). For the red areas I’m using quinacidrone red and dioxazine purple, with titanium white for the highlights. The painted the under coat with napthol red around day 6.
Since these days I’m mostly doing fine-tuning work, it becomes more difficult to detect the difference. So I’m providing a ‘before’ photo of the red areas I painted today.
The fine-tuning includes straightening the edges and add more depth/shadow to each red section.
Here’s a view of the four red rectangular shapes I painted today.
I was having so much fun with painting today, that I continued on and painted to the two red triangles. This is the upper one.
And the lower red triangle (the photo is a tad blurring but you get the idea).
And as always, the full view.
Tomorrow the plan is to fine-tune the red diamond shapes.
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?
