Origami Mandala Rev 2.1

5.5x8.5" exacompta drawing journal, watercolors

Watercolored the inked Origami Mandala (2 dimensional, not the folded kind).

Tried some gradual color mixing, starting with a peach and adding magenta in gradual amounts, painting around the second layer out from the center with a slight color change toward pink each time.

[this is my watercolor painting set-up at our table... 2 travel containers of W&N watercolor half pans, 2 water-filled salsa jars, tea, journal, extra palettes for mixing, paper towells for drips. That's how the two jars look after painting the mandala, with no refilling.]

 i want to try aimee's colorful inked backgrounds for art journaling + doodling
