Open Mandalas

This started with me experimenting drawing mandalas with my new compass drawing set in pencil on paper.  Taking a step back I went over with pen the shapes I could see within the mandalas and got asking...why not keep them open!  Thus, the open mandala which I took a step further through the digital phases and varied the colours and prints (taken from my travel photos) until it just felt right to me.  The results are fun and capture an essence of my moments!
