Dragon Swirl Mandala
Those of you who follow me know of my love for mandala/zendalas. Rarely do I use a template - I would rather take compass and protractor in hand and create. I came across a You Tube video by Alena Light of a mandala called Dragon Swirl. This is actually her patterns. I wanted to learn the composition and do some shading on it. I was fascinated by how this piece came about. I thought I took a picture before shading, but can't find it. The shading was amazing - took me two evenings to finish. The photo doesn't do it full justice, but close. This is on 12"x12" watercolor paper. If interested, you can find her video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTMt_XzrTzU.
