2017-219: The Eclipse – Version 2

My painting progress for today:

Today I decided to paint a second, smaller version of “The Eclipse Rides Through Corvallis” mandala that was a community street mural painting done on July 30 (see my post of that day’s progress: MotD 211). With this version I can easily put this design on t-shirts and stickers (as people in the community are requesting).

I did my best to match the colors used in the street version. In image 4 where I painted the blue, it seemed a bit off. Then when I painted the orange, the blue looked even worse to me. So at image 6 I toned down the blue with a light blue violet, which balanced out the colors a bit better. Going over the black lines at the end (images 9/10) helped to more clearly define the design and make the colors look better together.

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
