For day 5 of this month’s Mandala of the Month, Breezy, I added iridescent bronze shading to the gold sections to give them more depth. Then I added a mix of zinc white and iridescent pearl to the white sections to bring them more forward.
I ended today’s session by outlining little curvy sections around and along the sides of the design (image 5a); hopefully giving the illusion of the “breeze” catching them and sending them on their way.
Because of the iridescent nature of the pearl and the gold, it makes it a bit challenging to capture in these photos. Hopefully you can get the essence of it.
