Monday Mandala 22

Mandala_22I tried something different with this mandala.  I’ve been using a monoline brush in all the previous drawings, because I wanted the uniform look to the lines.  But I wanted to try drawing with a brush that would show the pressure sensitivity.  So I tried a different brush.

I think it turned out pretty well.  I was able to make the brush much smaller in size than I could with the monoline brush, which meant I could get much finer lines in the mandala.  So the inner circles of this mandala have some pretty intricate elements because I had more play with the size of the lines.

The outer layer seems kind of boring and plain, but I wanted to stay with the flower/leaf motif I had going on in the inner layers.  Definitely less uniform looking, but much more obvious that it is hand-drawn.
