MotW 17-01: Agate Mandala

Here’s my progress through painting Mandala of the Week 2017 #1: Agate Mandala

I used a mix of M. Graham and Golden acrylics on canson’s mixed media paper; plus a copic multiliner pen, and white and pink gel pens for highlights.

In choosing my colors, I let the different sections of the mandala guide me. It’s easy to do. First look at the section you’re about to color/paint. Then look over at your colors, which ever one grabs your “attention” first, use that one. The more you do this the easier it gets to know which color to use. Soon you’ll look at a section and you’ll hear the color being said in your head. …at least that’s how it’s working for me these days.  🙂
