MotW 16-48: Tis the Season for Ornaments Mandala

Here’s my step-by-step painting of the Mandala of the Week for week 48 of 2016. The theme for the week: Tis the Season for Ornaments. I used various watercolor media and gold, black, and white gel pens on 140# Strathmore 400 Watercolor paper.

Before painting this I had a couple of ideas for colors to use and yet when I painted it, only one remained, the background dark blue. All the other colors happened on the fly; it always seems to come out better that way. 🙂

Happy Coloring!
