Topic 3 Apply color theory!

From the previous Unit you already have knowledge on basic color theory. You can even create your own color palettes! Apply what you’ve learnt and begin coloring the mandala with your favorite colors.

Here we used the opposing colors of the color wheel, or you might say contrasting colors. This mandala is executed in some hues of blue and some hues of orange. We also used black contour for making it more expressive, it’s entirely up to you whether you add it or not.

Adding details

After painting with the main colors, you can always come back and add some more details if you feel that some parts look empty. Remember, the more details make the mandala more finished and interesting.
