Here are a few more examples of the more complex color wheel mandalas as well as a few alternatives to try by focusing on color schemes and by adding elements of drawing objects into the basic six segmented mandala pattern.  Notice that you can also play with developing multiple pattern themes and shapes in the segments.  Have fun and let your imagination go wild!
