January Colouring in: Take II

And another mandala coloured in…

I find it so calming to colour in these circular designs, just beginning in the centre and slowly working outwards, deciding one colour at a time and only seeing at the end exactly what my colour choices have created. It’s not difficult to do, only time consuming, and time is something I certainly have an abundance of right now during our second national Covid lockdown. So I think colouring in as an enjoyable and engrossing creative pastime is my Weekly Smile this week…

How do other people choose to spend their leisure time while staying indoors during a winter lockdown? 🙂

  1. “deciding one colour at a time and only seeing at the end exactly what my colour choices have created” — That’s the way I like to do it, too. It can be surprising, and it isn’t always how I thought it would turn out, yet certain color combinations end up looking better than expected.

    1. Funnily enough the few times I’ve planned in advance exactly which colours to use the whole way through, I’ve been a bit disappointed by the end result… 🙂

    1. This was done completely with gel pens, but I also use coloured pencils at times, or even a combination of both if the mood strikes me! 🙂
