As I continue to draw mandalas, I’m still learning what elements lend themselves to coloring and how many details I should put in to make the final product more pleasing to the eye.
I’ve stated before that I suck at picking out color palettes, so I’ve saved lots of them to my iPad. When I get ready to color, I can just swatch the colors from the color palette and everything hangs together.
Coloring in Procreate (and coloring in general) is very calming for me. I can find my zen and just let everything else be while I work. I had fun coloring this mandala, although I wish I had picked a color palette with one or two additional colors. There are enough details that making it all work with my limited palette was a challenge.
I think it turned out well, though. 😛
