FREEFORM BETWEED & MANDALA
A little freeform Betweed done on a black tile to begin the day. This was done with a single multicolor pencil on a black tile, with a dash of white Prismacolor for highlights. Done for the Diva Challenge, part II (see yesterday's post).
Next, an entirely freeform Betweed mandala, done with the same multicolored pencil, a gray Prismacolor, and a spot of Uniball Sigma Broad White pen.
Sure thing Maggibee. I'll blog about it in a day or two (I am on the road tomorrow). Bottom line: I find these in the kids art section of various stores--I've yet to find one that I both like AND can get consistently. There's lots to say about them. I love Prismacolor pencils (they don't make a multicolor...not that I'm aware of) but I really do enjoy the multicolor pencils that are usually ignored because they're supposedly only for kids. Check the blog over the weekend for more on this. Thanks!

Your free form Betweed is lovely and elegant! I have a few of those multicolor pencils as well... I'll have to remember to use them once in awhile! Your use of them is inspiring! Wonderfully done!

Very pretty. I don't know what a multicolor pencil look like and how to use it.
