Green and Blue Mandalas

Andy's Mandala

This first mandala was a special piece that I created for my friend Andy. I created it on Clairefontaine watercolor paper first by painting it with artist grade watercolor paints and then adding the design with marker. The mantra surrounding the mandala is one of illumination - the Gayatri mantra.

Blue & Green Mandala

This mandala was drawn on off-white laid Fontaine pastel paper with marker and then colored in with Prismacolor colored pencils.

OK now you're speaking my language Biffy Beans! I loved the pinks oranges and yellows as well, but blue/green is my favorite color palette.

You know, it's strange really. Purple has always been my favorite color, but when I started getting into fountain pens and ink it started to fall in love with blue and green. Go figure.

Ooh! That top mandala is my favorite Biffybeans mandala of all time. It displayed on my monitor like a firework, except the beauty stayed instead of falling to the ground. Brilliant colors.

Most beautiful!

Your blue and green mandalas have a peacefulness to them that is hard to put in words.

They just soothe the soul.
