Mandala for 29 Dec 2019

Mandala 29 Dec 2017 by Angela Porter

I started this one late last night and finished it today.

A very different kind of colour scheme, reminds me a little of Steampunk.  Also, I used a watercolour brush to colour it in and I’ve left the texture in the colour mostly there, again something quite different for me.

WIP Wednesday

WIP 27 Dec 2017 Angela Porter

It’s WIP Wednesday once again over at the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group. This is my current work in progress. I think I’m in touch with my inner bohemian/hippy once again in my colour choices, or maybe I just need a break from all the Christmassy/Winter colour schemes.  Perhaps I just need some bright colour in my life at the moment.  I do know using bright, vibrant colours always makes me smile.

WIP Wednesday and a new book available in the Colorist App

It’s that day again – WIP Wednesday – in the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.

So, here is my work in progress, an icy patterned mandala.

This mandala is one of ten templates available in my latest book in the Colorist App from Faction Apps,

I’m using the template as an opportunity to learn more about Autodesk Sketchbook Pro on my Microsoft Surface Book, in particular working with the different kind of layers and how I can add patterns to the coloured sections.  This mandala is going to be great for that as the sections are quite large.

Christmas mandala

AngelaPorter_ChristmasMandala2_2017

I enjoyed drawing and colouring the previous mandala so much, I thought I’d do another.  This was particularly helpful for me as I was rather emotionally drained yet emotional yesterday after doing a couple of anti-stigma talks in my role as a champion for Time to Change Wales, a campaign that aims to end the stigma and discrimination that surrounds mental illness.

I started this yesterday, but it’s taken me much of today to complete it.

Wednesdays are WIP Days over on the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.

Today, as part of my December/Advent gifts, I created this Christmas themed mandala for them to colour in.

If you’d like to colour this one in, then pop over to the facebook group, join and download and print the template for your own personal use – no selling, sharing and so on, either uncoloured or coloured!  Don’t forget, the group members, and myself, love to see how you bring the template to life with colour!

I used my Microsoft Surface pen to draw the mandala on my Microsoft Surface book in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.  I then used the same tools to colour the mandala.

Mandala madness?
