2017-229: Yellow and Purple Mandala – Day 1

My painting progress for today:

Last Sunday I played with watercolors by wetting the surface and then dabbing in colors with a wet watercolor brush to see what happens as the colors bleed, spread, pool, and mix with each other. A dear friend calls this style of painting “Happenings” because you never know what’s going to happen.

Image #1 shows the mandala itself (yellow, greens, and warm oranges) with the addition of dry watercolors around the background. Adding the water turned the background into a rich deep purple. It really makes the mandala shine. Have yet to receive any insight about this one. It will probably come as I work on it in 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!
