Playing Around

I had some free time sitting around in the doctor’s office the other day to play around with some mandalas and color. Still dealing with my medical issues, but at least the mandalas turned out well! 😛

I started out with a mandala that I thought looked like a quilt block – all straight lines and angles. My color palette selection could have been better, but I do like how the colors highlight the various pieces of the mandala. After some reflection, I think next time I will add more colors into the outer layer – some lighter colors in those lines would make a big difference in the overall appeal, I think.

This mandala was one that I used while trying a different coloring route. Rather than coloring in the empty spaces, I put color in the lines of the mandala itself. I would like to try this one again, but with some bolder colors next time. I like how it turned out, but wish the colors weren’t quite so muted. Something to remember for next time! 😀
