Zen Colouring Contest #29 - || Aztec Solarism || - A Chance to WIN STEEM by colouring a weekly stencil!

in #zencolouringcontest4 years ago (edited)



Hey Steemians!

Week 29 of #zencolouringcontest starts now!

Each week I will provide a stencil to be coloured in with no restrictions on the medium used, with a chance to win 45% of this posts payout and the weeks' donations for 1st place.

To add a little twist and interaction within the community, there will be a featured colour each week, picked at random from entrant's choices. This colour must be used in some way in your interpretation (use as little or as much of the featured colour as you like).


The featured colour this week is Blue
Below is a screen capture of the random picker's selection:
(with example shades of the colour)

@gardeningchef donated 2.0 SBD last week, Thank you!

@sallybeth23 donated 4.0 STEEM (3.7 SBD) last week, Thank you!


This week the stencil is inspired by the sun and Aztec/Mayan patterns and designs. With the last few pattern being more simplistic I decided to make this one way more detailed, I used the multi-brush set to 50 and set to snowflake, so with every stroke I made I created 100 lines! I hope you all enjoy colouring this week's stencil!

Have fun, but most importantly have a relaxing zen-colouring sesh!

That’s very pretty! 🌈🦋🌴🍀

A HUGE thank you to @sallybeth23 for the promotion of this week, the prizes this week will be enormous!

Thank you so much!! @sallybeth23 🦋

Another great stencil. This is my entry.


Suggestion Palette: Earth Colours

I love the extension of the pattern by outwardly repeating and overlapping the outline. Colouring the outline light blue is a great touch, it accentuates the darker shades that were used to colour the main design!

Thanks for entering and supporting the #zencolouringcontest!
