MotW 16-45: Mandalas Hand Drawn

Here’s my step-by-step painting of the Mandala of the Week for week 45 of 2016. The theme for the week: Mandalas – Hand Drawn. I used various watercolor media and a white gel pen on 140# Strathmore 400 Watercolor paper.

I painted this mandala intuitively, meaning as I looked at each section, I let it tell me what color wanted to go there. And being that it’s an exaggerated design, it felt like it wanted to be bold, bright, and 3-dimensional yet have a very delicate, lightly textured background to complement the design.Select an image to start the slideshow.

Happy Coloring!
