How to Paint Dot Mandalas #006 - Desert Sunset Spiral and Color Inspiration

Hi All, I've published a new Mandala Dot Painting video tutorial that I hope you enjoy. In this spiral Mandala Dot Painting I was inspired by the Arizona Sonoran Desert which blooms from mid March - late April/May. Such a beautiful explosion of color in a somewhat hostile environment. Some of the cacti bloom with these beautiful fuchsia, yellow and orange colors. Of course, the sky is blue! And, there's a digital pattern if you would like more detailed graphics to follow.  I hope you enjoy this tutorial.
