“No Mud, No Lotus” by Kathryn Costa
The lotus grows and blooms in muddy conditions. What a beautiful metaphor for opening our hearts to the moment and loving what is.
Greens can be tricky to work with as it is made mixing blue and yellow. Some greens are warm as they have more yellow in them and they don’t combine so well with the greens where more blue is used. What I love about colored pencils is how we can color over them. Here a yellow green was first used on the leaves. Then I added a blue green color. Together they combine to create a vibrant result. Experiment and play with greens.
Light pink is another color associated with the heart chakra.
