MotW 17-08: Hoops Mandala

Here’s my progress through painting Mandala of the Week 2017 #8:  Hoops Mandala

Focusing on the “negative” space was the only thing I knew in advance of this painting. Just as I started, I “saw” the center petals as maroon and followed suit. From there, each color revealed itself as I went along. More and more I’m loving the idea of just jumping in with painting without a clue of how it’s going to turn out.

I use Golden and M. Graham acrylics paints, matte medium, and gel pens (stars) and Canson mixed media paper.
