    Remix Mandala

    This mandala started as a drawing in Sepia PITT pen (S), with detail with black PITT pen (XS). Some mandalas are cool as B&W and others need color to make them pop. This was the latter, so I watercolored with my little W&N travel paint set(s). It's in a 5.5"x8.5" Canson watercolor journal. The paper is lovely, but after working in the Clairefontaine watercolor journal (art on square paper) and the Moleskine watercolor journal (i.e. Carnival and black.violet.3) I would put Canson in third place if I plan to watercolor. Drawing is lovely, and the watercolors are vivid, but the paint seems to sit on the paper before absorbing, hard to describe since I am a watercolor newbie.

    A painted mandala for DAY SEVENTEEN of NaNoJouMo 2009.

    You're right, Tammy. Every watercolor paper absorbs the paints differently! This, of course, is wonderful! Hugs, Terri xoxo

    I appreciate you telling me your watercolor journal preferences. I've asked my local Art Store if they carry Clairefontaine, but they don't. I want try the square one you talk about! Different size new perspective for me. I love the way you watercolor in your mandala's. So so pretty! I hope you do display them somewhere when your all through.

    P.S. There is a lovely square "Hand" watercolor journal that I am going to try, I bought one through Blick.

    Eden, My mandalas reside in my journals... but you have a good point. It's something I've been giving some thought - displaying my art - but I haven't taken any action yet.
