Parvati

W16 7 19 PENTALIC PARVATI 02

Our old (as in years) statue of Parvati.

She is Shiva’s consort or wife, and daughter of Himavan and Mena.
I know her best as the mother of Ganesha and Kartikeya.
She is the goddess of love and devotion, as well as fertility, part of the trinity of Hindu goddesses, along with Lakshmi (prosperity) and Sarasvati (knowledge).
Our Parvati appears to have her left hand in the Abhaya mudra (fear not, in both Hindu and Buddhist iconography) and her right hand is dispensing boons in the Varada mudra.

Pentalic Aqua Journal, Platinum Preppie Pen, De Atramentis Document brown ink,
and Luma, Sennelier, Holbein, QoR and Daniel Smith watercolors.

    This watercolor is absolutely gorgeous. It’s one beautiful painting. The colors are so pretty and blend so well. I am interested in the paints and other things you used while painting this because I have never heard of them. I will have to do some research. When people list the things they have used, I always research the ones I do not know. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. genie
