    Indigo Mandala

    "Winter is an etching,
    spring a watercolor,
    summer an oil painting
    and autumn a mosaic of them all."
    ~ Stanley Horowitz

    I might have pushed the saturation a bit, but it's almost this vivid and a bit more purple but such is life. Another freehand (freebrush?) mandala, playing with blending and generally overdone but fun exploring watercolors and learning some sort of control with a #8 pointed round, my new fav. That's DAY 20 of Art Every Day Month!

    I just bought The Artist's Handbook of Materials and Techniques, a reference book. I'm reading about concepts I never understood (hey, my background is in mathematics not chemistry). Why does paint adhere to paper? How do you make your own pastels? What is the best type of watercolor brush hair... and why? The analytical artists out there might find it interesting!
