Yellows and Oranges received some attention today with a bit more depth and dimension.
My painting progress:

1 – add shading to first orange section
2 – added shading to second orange section
3 – add shading to third orange section
4 – finished shading of last orange section
5 – added shading to a couple of yellow sections
6 – finished adding shading to rest of yellow sections
7 – front view of today’s progress
8 – front view of today’s progress with mandala temporarily in place
To produce the shading on both the yellow and orange sections, I used a darker shade of the base color (yellow ochre, anthraquinone red) and permanent violet dark for the darkest shading. I used a gel medium to help with the blending of the colors. You can really see how flat the other colors are (green, purple, and blue) in comparison.
Read about the “Behomian Sunset” Mandala as this week’s Mandala of the Week.

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.

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?
