This week’s theme: Beads
I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Beads (from Sunday’s MotD post). This ended up being a less controlled version of the original design. Painting this, I struggled to stay within the lines and yet this voice in my head kept telling me to “go loose” with it. Let ‘er rip! All of it reminding me that staying in the lines is always optional!
Now that it’s done it looks to me like prayer flags joyously flapping in the wind.
I used M. Graham and Golden Acrylics, iridescent pearl, iridescent gold, and black and white pens on Canson mixed media paper.
