2017-256: Bohemian Sunset – Day 5

The blue and green sections got all the attention today while I gave them a bit more depth and dimension.

My painting progress:

To produce the shading on both the blue and green sections, I used a darker shade of the base color (ultramarine blue, sap green) and permanent violet dark for the darkest shading. I used a gel medium to help with the blending of the colors.

I love how “bumpy” (3 dimensional) it looks. That’s the shading people! Look at the purple in comparison; it looks quite flat. I’ll save purple for next time.

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
