I’ve been experimenting with a new color palette over the past few days…
I also painted a few rocks with these same colors. I usually paint a background/base color underneath my mandalas (like the brown on the tile above), but I hate covering up the rocks’ natural color, so I painted a few without a base color. I’m not sure how I feel about how they turned out though, because the mandala’s colors don’t show up as vibrant without a base color. I was thinking “Earthy paint colors, natural rock color” but it kinda failed.
In actuality, this rock is less gray as it shows in the photo, it’s more of a brown, and it’s prettier in person, but I still think it would have looked better with a base color underneath.
Here’s one I painted in all browns and tans…
It works a little better than the other rock without a base color underneath, but I don’t really like the mandala design as much.
I know I probably sounds like I’m being overly critical of them, but I really don’t mean to be, I’m just ‘writing out loud’ as I’m processing/learning/seeing what I feel works and what doesn’t as I’m traveling along in my little mandala journey here. Thanks for traveling with me.
I’m still looking for round rocks…
Wishing you a happy Monday and a wonderful week ahead.
