Today was a day to create a mandala! I just felt the urge to do so as I was playing around with traditional media and abstract art.
It is lovely to change the pace and media being used from time to time. I needed this today, I think. It’s been a while since I last created a mandala. I’m also still trying to understand the symmetry tools in Clip Studio Paint.
The limited colour palette I used is this month’s for the color palette challenge for the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book fans facebook group.
I had some fun playing with contrast to create the illusion of volume, depth, dimension.
It was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours this morning, and I created a speeded up / time lapse version you can view on my YouTube channel.
I did a voice-over chat to go with the video. I updated on various things going on, and talked about my struggles with imposter syndrome, lacking self-confidence and confidence in my art too.
