This week in art

This is a mandala I created in the iOrnament app.

mandala

I brought it into Procreate and super-imposed it on a digitally painted background.

Then I added a bit of translucent orange and white colour in some sections, and some opaque white for contrast.

Finally, I added some shading and highlighting.

This week in art

For those of you who are on Facebook, I am one of the weekly guest artists in the group Let's Talk Coloring. I am giving away a PDF copy of each of my colouring books; all four giveaways close on Friday at noon EDT. I hope you can join us!

Let's Talk Coloring


My friend Alice Hendon loves tangling on coloured backgrounds she creates with watercolour and spray inks. So she was the perfect person to test drive my Colorful Backgrounds book. She created some great artwork, and wrote this review of the book on her blog, The Creator's Leaf.

Alice Hendon

And here's a scoop... I am putting the finishing touches on Colorful Backgrounds 2, which will include several backgrounds created by Alice.


Finally, these are new mandalas I created using an app called iOrnament, in which you can draw repeating patterns and rosettes.
