My painting progress for today:

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.”
