Botanical Mandalas

Botanical Mandalas - student project

Here is my project.  I created two similar mandala designs and coloured one with Sharpies and the other with coloured pencils.  The difference between these two mediums is decidedly marked!  In the pencil mandala the colours are more subtle, although I did have to tweak the saturation levels a little as the pink edges of the daisies were not visible in the original.  Sharpies are wow! in yer face and really make colours pop!  I don't have enough confidence to colour with watercolours, but the original designs are on watercolour paper, so I may try that in the future.

I've really enjoyed designing these mandalas and will definitely be designing more!  Thank you Louise for creating this class!
