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.
