2017-254: Bohemian Sunset – Day 4

Yellows and Oranges received some attention today with a bit more depth and dimension.

My painting progress:

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.

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
