“Sweet Victory” Mandala: Day 1

While in my booth at the Portland Body Mind Spirit Expo on April 5, I started painting the “Sweet Victory” mandala using watercolor pencils & crayons. I have two ways I use w/c pencils.

  1. If I have a large enough area to fill, I color it in using the w/c pencil or crayon as a normal pencil or crayon. Then I wet a brush and then use the brush to ‘convert’ the dry pencil into watercolor paint. (You’ll see an example or two in the slide show)
  2. For smaller, difficult areas to fill, I take a wet brush, dab it on the tip of my pencil/crayon, and then brush the paint onto the paper.

Here’s the slideshow of my progress that day.

BTW…this mandala is in the “Enlighten-Up” Mandala Coloring book.

Happy Coloring!
