When gazing at your mandalas, the mind is taken in by your elaborate designs. Taken in on a journey through your passion. The care put to each detail is astounding. Each time you look at it its simply surreal. Like a gate to another world, your mandalas are incredible works of art. This one in specific is beautiful in its own unique way. Instead of following the balance most artists put in coloring it mixes and matches in its elaborate spiral, astonishing all who gaze into its depths. Your work is truly something artists should aspire to. Though its color scheming is different from the norm, it is a double edged sword. Adding color brought life to this design, but its balance is unfocused. The green and purple override the design making the viewer almost miss the flecks of yellow detail. Though it makes the white within it stand out it is largely off balance. Your work is still a peacock in a sea of swans, continue and I'm sure your mandalas will improve.
What do you think?
