More Mandalas

Yesterday afternoon I spent a while in the studio just playing. I drew the circles for both these mandalas with a compass to get me started and then I just doodled. I used watercolours for the right side and aquarelle crayons for the left side as you see it here. Could this have come about with my battle with right/left brain? I learned a few years ago that I work with the right and left side of my brain equally. I certainly wasn't consciously thinking about anything when I was drawing this.
I have called this one "chaos". I wonder what it portrays, if anything. I used oil pastels to colour this one. This is just another doodle. I have to say I had a dreadful headache when I finished these. Perhaps I had to concentrate too hard, what do you think?

I couldn't resist playing with these mandalas in paint shop pro XI.
I do like how they have turned out. This is the kind of thing I was doing early on in the C&G course it's nice working with your own source material!

Your right/left brain usage explains your ability with the computer-love the stuff you are doing. You are certainly exploring Mandalas. Sandy in La Center
