This painting was done on a 5″x5″ canvas. It started out as a pour painting, but the blue paint took over the painting. After it dried, for about a week, put a mandala on top of the fluid painting using metallic acrylic paint.
A lot of times, I add shading to my drawings to give them depth. I add color to my drawings to give them something extra. However, once the ink was applied to this drawing, no color are shading was required. It had it’s own beauty and depth.
More of my daily drawings are posted on the Drawing page.
I was reading Kathryn Costa’s book “The Mandala Guidebook. It challenged the readers to create 100 Mandalas in 100 Days. My first ten mandalas for this challenge are posted on the 100 Mandala Challenge page. I am on day 13 and I am seven ahead. That will come in handy when I start my long drive to the south. Below are drawings 011 through 020.
I do not know how this week’s drawing were all in color. There are normally more black/white drawings than color. I guess I was in a colorful mood.
I was reading Kathryn Costa’s book “The Mandala Guidebook“. It challenged the readers to create 100 Mandalas in 100 Days. My definition of mandalas, not the official definition, is: a design, usually round, that is symmetrical. I enjoy drawing mandalas, so challenge accepted. Below are the first five.
As I work on the next 95 mandalas, I will post them on my 100 Mandalas Challenge page. Note: The feature image a mandala I did right before I accepted the challenge.
Sometimes you have to work through the bad to get to the good, the pretty, and the amazing. Believe it or not, you learn something with ugly drawings. Below are some of the good and bad drawings from August. Others drawing are on the Drawing page.
My favorite location to walk in Grand Island, Nebraska is Hall County Park. Why? The trees! It has trees, big trees, lots of trees. The path around the park is about a mile, and there are two other trails: one around the Stuhr Museum property, and a second trail that takes you to the Walmart.
All trails are very peaceful. If you feel adventurous, you can take one of the many trails into the woods. If you need a rest, there are plenty of swings and picnic tables. The restrooms in Hall County Park are some of the cleanest public facilities I have seen. Yes, they are ranked right up there with Chick-fil-a for cleanliness.
A word of caution. Watch out for motor vehicles, bicyclists, and wild turkeys.
Good morning! Would you like to see something pretty? My latest fluid painting.
And, something prettier. Done with neon paint.
Below it is under a black light.
I think I like it better shown under normal like.
This is one of my pour painting I did yesterday. I looked at it and thought; that is interesting, it Okay. Not really what I was expecting.
Then I decided to put it under a black light, because I did use neon acrylic paint. And the results were Wow! The black light picture did not pick up all the detail. You can see the layer of yellow and the blue and pinks hidden beneath the white.
