Mandala | 25 October 2021

I’ve been working on this mandala from time to time. Originally, I wanted to stick to fairly warm brown tones. But today, I just wanted to lift the colours with blues and oranges.

I’m glad I did. The colours are stilly vintage-y, rusty, corroded, aged. But there’s a warmth to them that I like. It is a limited color palette, and I do seem to do well with them.

The shadows and highlights really help to add some volume to the design.

I can see some Zentangle patterns in the design -Morriseau, Shattuck, Mooka – and perhaps others that have shades of tangle patterns about them. It seems that Inktober Tangles 2021 is having an effect even on my mandalas, though this is the first mandala I’ve created in a couple of months.

Created in Clip Studio Paint.

    1. it would be a tricky one – it’s really intricate and would be much, much bigger than A4 for it to be coloured! I’m glad you like it though šŸ™‚ Perhaps I’ll do a version specifically as a template for the group šŸ™‚ … sometime!
