The mandala for this month was done using the "snowflake method". I cut a snowflake out of tracing paper and lightly traced it onto this grey Canson paper. Then I connected any points that I felt would enhance the design. At a recent meeting of my art quilt group we talked about color. For the next gathering we are to bring an item an explain the color according to a color wheel. Maybe that influenced my choice of using analogous colors from the blue to purple. That combination should be easy to explain:)
Funny, I made a special effort to buy just the "right" paper for colored pencil and ended up using a piece that I found in my drawer. This learning process continues and I know that I have a lot more practice to do. What fun!
