Sacred / Ancient / Symbolic Art
The challenge this week is bought to us
by Kat of Wright Story.
A thought-provoking theme
with so many directions to go!
I've always been intrigued by mandalas,
and have never drawn one before,
so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Drawing the design was fun, relaxing
and meditative, and seemed to just evolve by itself.
BUT then came the color ~
I don't think I've concentrated so hard on
staying inside the lines since the third grade!
My head came very close to exploding!
How do people do the really complicated ones??
This one is relatively simple.
Maybe I should have been meditating while I colored.
Actually, maybe I was, and that's how I got through it.
Still, I think it's a pretty little design and I rather enjoy
looking at it now that all the coloring is done :)
It's colored pencils and water color, just to list the FYI stuff.
Stop over at Inspiration Avenue on Sunday afternoon
to see all the inspiring sacred and symbolic art!
