Mandala Friday

With darker days come darker shades. My colour palette has switched from soft, light pastels to strong, dark tones.

After weeks of endlessly blogging about lifestyle and travel topics, I’ve finally posted my latest artwork. Mandala’s are a joy to create and colour. I’ve been doing this for over a year now and it’s fair to say I have a lot of patience, especially when it comes to drawing a hundred lines. However, it’s those little lines that keep me occupied for hours on ends.

Leaning closer and closer to Islamic art, I kept the borders simple and added bigger tezhip patterns within them. Being a fan of extreme detailing, I liked the outcome of the whole piece. The colours worked so great together, but of course what colour doesn’t work well with gold. If this piece was printed I could stare at it forever.
