I started this piece in early July. I was restless and needed something to sink my teeth into. And I was staring at a painted-white door. Blank. There's nothing like blank, white space to get you off your bum - because it screams: Paint me!!! Paint me!!!
And so I did. Below, is the outline worked first in pencil - mainly the lines that divide the circles. Then, out comes a big, black Sharpie and the design grows. I usually have nothing in mind. Always, I start at the centre, with a dot, and the mandala grows around it.
The finished piece measures 32 x 27 inches (82 x 69 cm). That's one of the biggest ones I've done to date :)
The big spaces were painted in with: Blues, white, and silver. The doodling was in black Sharpies - a fat nib, and a fine point.
The picture below will give you an idea of how big it is. Because of its size, I couldn't work on it for too long - the old back would ache the next day!!! So, slowly-slowly it went, until it was done. It's taken me about two weeks of on days, and off days.
