Snowflake 2013: Day 1 – 2

I started the Snowflake 2013 hyperbolic tessellation mandala earlier in 2014…forgot to note when exactly or take photos. So the Day 1 images show what I completed on that day. Oh well. Regardless, I continued coloring on it today and will continue to do so now on a regular basis.

This version of Snowflake 2013 is 15″ diameter and I’m coloring it in pen & ink styleusing copic multiliner markers. Because of this larger then normal-for-me size, it will take me a bit longer to complete…which is okay by me. 🙂

The challenge with pen & ink is creating an interesting piece without colors…it’s through texture and different types of strokes that contrast and “color” are achieved. Thus far I’m using short linear strokes.

I have yet to make this mandala available for others to color…probably sometime in 2015.

Happy Coloring!
