Mandala 21 – Colored

The last few weeks I’ve spent some time playing around in Procreate and iColorama to digitally color some of my mandalas.  Experimenting with the different color palettes in Coolors has been fun, too.

I really like the color palette of this mandala, though I think I should have made the gradient a bit more subtle.  The coloring does highlight the design elements of the mandala, which is nice.  The technique here is good, but I think I prefer actually coloring in pieces of the design, rather than coloring the lines.

Monday Mandala 33

Mandala_33Digging the elements I incorporated into this mandala.  Simple, but lots of pieces for coloring, which I like.  I’m experimenting with other forms besides just circles.

I’ve also been experimenting with Amaziograph again.  I think I’ll share some of those mandalas as well.  They’re not as good, simply because it doesn’t have line smoothing, so my shakiness shows more in the lines.  Ah, the joys of aging. 😛

Monday Mandala 32

Mandala_32Is it bad that I am running out of things to say about the mandalas?  Should I just post the image and nothing else?  I mean, it’s an image, so it’s visual, but I’m not sure I’m capable of NOT writing about it, even if I say the same thing over and over.

Is that bad?

In any event, I like this one.  I hope you do too!

Monday Mandala 30

Mandala_30I can’t believe I’ve done 30 of these already.  I’m excited to color this one and see how that changes the look of it.  It feels balanced and I’m happy with the different levels and how they turned out.  I wish I had made the center layer a bit more complex, but overall I’m happy with the design.
