Now the wet-on-wet painting can begin. Yay! I love the way colors can flow together this way. I will concentrate on getting the symbols painted in the correct colors along with the areas around the figure before I begin to finish up the figure itself.
Chakra Level 7, Crown Chakra is the connection to the divine. It’s colors are white and rose and it is located at the very top of the head just like its name. A bright white and rose crown that looks kind of like a lotus blossom. First carefully painting the symbol in rather opaque rose hues with touches of red to bring up the value. I wet the area around the figure-head and the top symbol, then lightly apply layers of rose rays repeatedly till I am satisfied with the rays extending down to the top of the head between the mastic reserved white rays. In this level the rose shows but the white is covered up by the mastic. Don’t worry, it will not be hard to finish this part up correctly after we remove the mastic.
Chakra Level 6, Third Eye is the connection to intuition. It’s colors are Indigo and Purple (indigo with a touch of rose) and it is located on the forehead of our figure.I placed its symbol just above the head on the left. It has an outer circle with two sides of pointy mosque shapes coming out of an inner circle that has an upside down triangle in the center. I paint the symbol with a rose/purple center and indigo rays expanding across the area of the body that it affects. Now I can see the curves working together in the design.
