Here’s my step-by-step painting of the Mandala of the Week for week 47 of 2016. The theme for the week: Buckle Up. I used various watercolor media and a white gel pen on 140# Strathmore 400 Watercolor paper.
I painted this mandala inspired by the colors used in three of this week’s Buckle Up MotD images. Using the iridescent watercolors allowed me to give the overall structure a metallic look. The white gel pen lets me highlight and give a shine to 3-D-looking sections within the mandala.
