Moth Mandala

The Art

I have been working on the moth drawing from yesterday. It’s a long, laborious, yet enjoyable process. So, this afternoon I thought I’d create a mandala to sit behind my moth illustration.

I’m quietly pleased with this one. I like the choice of colour for the background, even though it’s an unusual choice for me. The central glow and shadow helps to lighten the background a little and brings attention to the moth, which is the main motif in this design.

I decided to use just black and white for the moth and mandala, though there are places in the mandala where I’ve let the background show through.

I will continue to work on the other design, it’s just going to take me a couple, or even a few, days to complete.
