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.
Here’s my slideshow of my progress to date:
I have yet to make this mandala available for others to color…probably sometime in 2015.
