35 – Yellow Orange Brown Mandala

Today I decided to google search “#MandalaoftheDay” to see what’s out there and found this yellow/orange beauty on wenuitun.tumblr.com posted on 8/12/2014.

I love how she has mandalas within mandalas, each beautiful in their own right. Instead of being made up of patterns in concentric circles, she created pattern components in different areas of the whole mandala. It has a very art deco look about it.

May I also say her use of these warm colors really work. I very rarely use brown and yet her use of brown helps ground,  frame and define the various sections of her mandala. Lovely.

This inspires me to draw/color “outside” my usual way of creating mandalas.

Happy Coloring!
