Here are some new mandalas. These two started as line art in iOrnament, then coloured in Procreate.

And this one is from my colouring book, Geneviève's Mandalas, coloured in Procreate.

As I crocheted the baby blanket and hat last week, I got a renewed interest in crochet. This is my current work in progress. (No, it's not a blanket.)

Two new mandalas this week. Line art done in iOrnament, and coloured in Procreate.

On another note, I actually made this a couple of weeks ago, but since it's a gift, I couldn't post until today. It's a crocheted baby blanket and loom-knitted hat I made for my friend Lena who is having a baby boy in a few weeks.

This week in art

Here are two free colouring pages from Dover Publications that I coloured in Procreate. One of the things I like to do is add a texture layer, I find that makes the result more interesting.

On another note, here are thumbnails of the mandalas I created in iOrnament in the last six months.

This week in art

A few weeks ago, I did an exercise where I took one of my mandalas, and created four different digital paintings using different backgrounds, textures, and colours. This week, I have a new set of four digital art pieces based on one mandala design from my Genevieve's Mandalas colouring book.
