This week’s theme: Door Knobs
I struggled at first to see how Door Knobs wanted to be painted. I looked at one of the “petals” in the middle section and then I looked over at my paints. The ultraviolet purple caught my eye first. As I proceeded to paint the first “petal”, I sensed that the whole mandala wanted to be this color. So that’s what I did; a mandala with varying shades (values) of ultraviolet purple. It almost looks like porcelain. It’s a cool effect.
For this painting I used acrylics: M. Graham Ultraviolet Purple and Golden Matte Medium…that’s it.
Inspiration for Today
