This week’s theme: Door Knobs

I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Door Knobs (from Sunday’s MotD post). So this one turned into a surprise…a monochromatic surprise.

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

“So when the world knocks at your front door,  clutch the knob and open on up, running forward into its widespread greeting arms with your hands before you, fingertips trembling though they may be.”   Anis Mojgani

Happy Coloring!
