Square Mandalas

"We can evade reality,
but we cannot evade
the consequences
of evading reality."
Ayn Rand

Technically it's the paper that is square, not the mandalas, but working in a square format is really different for me than working in my 5x8" moleskine journal for mandalas. I actually like the uneven rectangular shaped page because it works well with my irregular, chaotic mandalas. I did this one in black PITT pen extra super fine (XS) with highlights in purple micron (005). The colors of this mandala are that of the Black.Violet series I did this spring. The paper is dreamy. It's Clairefontaine 300g cold-pressed watercolor paper in an 8x8" wirebound journal.
