Breezy Mandala

For this month’s Mandala of the Month, I selected a mandala design I sketched in 2002 entitled, “Breezy”. It had yet to see the light of day…until this month. Before the mandala appears on the scene, I want to create a textured background, a foundation upon which to build the mandala.

Today I started out with a blank 2″ deep 12″x12″ wood panel that I textured with gesso yesterday. In my mind, I saw the background as being loose and carefree in blues and greens. So one by one, I added light blue, lime green, light green, and manganese blue.

Now that the foundation is laid, I can move forward with transferring the design onto the painting when I do “Day 2.”

About the Mandalas of the Day:

I post a variety of in-progress art for that day which can include mandalas from the Mandala of the Week, the Mandala of the Month, the Mandala of the Year, or the Mandala Meditation Stones.

Happy Coloring!

joyfully, Maureen
