This week’s theme: Hoops
I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Hoops (from Sunday’s MotD post). I was so looking forward to painting this week’s mandala and it didn’t disappoint. I knew I wanted to put the focus on the “negative” space (spaces inside and around the hoops).
I started with the center ‘petals’ and saw them as a deep red. From there, it would just popped into my head as to which color to use next. I worked from the inside out with the background and then painted the hoops and the center. Topping it off with gel pen highlights.
I used M. Graham and Golden acrylics paint on Canson’s mixed media paper, enhancing it with a variety of gel pens
In the next day or two, I’ll be posting images of my progress through this painting on my ArtProgressions.com blog site.
Inspiration for Today
