New Mandala Art: Dancing Waves

I’m way behind on posting images of new mandala art projects! This is probably my favorite mandala inspired work that I’ve made lately, although it’s less mandala than most. Created before our vacation to Oregon & California, I was inspired to draw this while dreaming of visiting the rocky coastline. Here is an image of the piece in it’s early stage:

I continued to work with pencil, marker & ink to develop the details and background. Here’s a photo of it before I began to add watercolors:

Finally I began to paint layers of watercolor, followed by more ink, pencil and charcoal until it was finished. Although the actual waves crashing on the rocks were breathtakingly beautiful, it was fun making a creative  rendition of what I dreamed I would see.

What do you dream of?
