I’m back to painting mandalas again. This time it’s the “True Warrior” mandala. It’s message is “Be strong of heart. Still the mind. Be of joyful spirit.” To me it has a strong Native American feel to it, although it could apply to almost any indigenous culture.
For this painting I’m using watercolor crayons (Staedtler & Caran d’Ache brands). I use a wet watercolor brush, pull some color from the crayon and then apply the paint to the paper. If an area is large enough, I’ll color in the area with the crayon directly onto the paper and then use a wet watercolor brush to spread the color.
It may be a bit difficult to see the outline in these photos. To see a better view, go to www.TheMandalaLady.com/to_color/viewall.php?gallery=1 then mouse over the small icons towards the bottom of the group and select “True Warrior”. (the mandalas are in alphabetical order)
