It’s like a breath of fresh air to whip up a little rose painting after laboring on a larger work!
Here is how Rose Mandala IV came together – with only a few mishaps along the way.
Opps! Easels often have an adjustable top bar that secures the painting in place but with a painting this small (6 x 6″), I just rest it precariously on the edge and an unexpected jiggle or vigorous brush strokes can send it tumbling. I was relieved it landed “peanut butter side up”!
You’d think I’d have learned my lesson the first time round but not too many minutes later the painting was on it’s second tumble but I caught it quick with the side of my gloved hand. Not the technique I was going for.
Quick – take it off the easel!
