Series: Mandala Makers 2020 #2
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, especially considering I had absolutely no plan at all at the start. In some ways that’s the trickiest part of this whole process; I’m getting used to not having a specific end in mind when building mixed media pieces (especially the backgrounds), but it’s a different feeling when I’m doing something as precise as drawing with a fineliner.
And while I know that not all black inks are equal, it was curious to see how one of the pens I used (Staedtler pigment liner) photographs so much more grey than the other (PITT artist pen).
If I could switch my brain off a touch more and stop overthinking the process, this could be a pleasant almost meditative experience. That, I expect, is something that will come with practise.
