9-15-16 – “Tension in the Eye of the Suffering” This was another mandala that I decided to test out on canvas versus sketchbook paper.
8-10-16 “Formless” 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.
