[Select an image for a larger view]
1 – add shading to purple/pink center orbs
2 – add shading to yellow/green center orbs
3 – add shading to turquoise and pink sections
4 – add shading to purple and blue sections
5 – add shading to green and light blue sections
6 – add shading to sections of outer “diamonds”
7 – add white highlights to all orbs
8 – full view of today’s progress
Today it was all about the shading and giving the piece more depth. By using darker colors, and in some cases purple, I added shading to the orbs and the sections within the “diamonds” which makes them look more 3-dimensional. The white highlights on the orbs makes them look shiny and more “orby”.
BTW…in case I failed to mention it before, I’m using copic markers to color this mandala and a variety of sakura and uni-ball signo gel pens for the detailing.

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
