Something about color vs. black and white really seems to bother me. I can’t wrap my head around it really. This was done in an orange/red sharpie and a fine tip black one. My favorite part about this piece is the staircase located underneath the lower “swirl.” The rest of it just doesn’t suit me for visual purposes. If someone else would rather keep it at their house or have a print, you are more than welcome!
Around the time that I was creating this piece of art, I was taking care of an older gentleman for a caregiving job. At this job I had a lot of downtime so I tried to draw in 15 minute segments so that I was taking some sort of break and not drawing on the clock. Perhaps my environment affected the spacial feel of the mandala, I can’t really pin-point it.
