I decided to take a little break from working on my picture books and do a watercolor with some very soft colors and textures. It’s a mandala but also a flower and also a very large image which is suitable for a big wall hanging or bed covering. I love the colors and had lots of fun drawing this because it is really not very symmetrical. I am fond of letting the pencil lay on the paper where it likes to and I don’t particularly care that it does not appear perfect. I am also enjoying the white feathers and little star flares peaking through. The coloring was done with watercolor pencils. Editing done in PSD2021
Here’s the image on a backpack.
