Saturated Grid Mandala

A month ago, on one of the last decent pool days, the kids played in the chilly water as I drew the background for this mandala. I drew in some of the squares with pencil, but I was not thrilled with it. I've been working in this 8x8" Clairefontaine watercolor journal. I freehand painted a mandala on the grid. Wacky? But I really, really like it!
