Night and Day - Zendala Dare #68

This week Erin chose a very special challenge for Zendala Dare. It´s to explore the world of opposites, just like the opposite personalities of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. So we have to split the template into two distinct sides.
First I colored the background with orange and blue watercolors. In the process I painted a wave like the yin-yang-symbol. After drying and tangling I colored and shaded the patterns.
And here is my Zendala “Night And Day”
