Colored Mandala

I started off coloring the background of my hamsa with what I thought were pale colored markers. But after coloring in all the background sections, I realized the colors were fairly deep. For contrast, I colored the hand with pale watercolor pencils.

Mandala Class #4

I finally remembered to watch the videos for the 4th of 5 mandala classes given by Julie Gibbons. Luckily she is nice enough to have the class available until the end of the year. In this class she demonstrated drawing a Hamsa, starting with an outline of your own hand. This was my very first Hamsa ever and was a lot of fun. I still need to color it in - I'm thinking of trying out markers for this. The first picture is my Hamsa as is with just an ink outline. The second image was colored in on the computer.
