Like my Quan Yin posted previously,
recently I’ve been adorning
my Thai Buddha with
my gaspeite and Hill Tribe OM necklace.
I’m not sure why I do this…
It isn’t necklace storage.
I like the play of the green on
the black wooden Buddha.
It feel like an OM offering,
like the marigolds lei in India.
I started my sketch with
watercolor penciled geometric shapes,
Making sure heads don’t fall off the page,
and planning how the beads draped.
What is nice about watercolor pencils
is the lines disappear when
watercolor hits the paper.
From that point I inked using the Platinum Carbon fine point.
When completed, I started the buildup with the watercolors.
The finished product, though I may add a bit more color to his body.

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
Voila ! I enjoyed watching the process of creation.
I love all the greens surrounding the Budda. It’s so calming.
I think the green is Daniel Smith Diopside Green (Primatek) and it edges over the yellow sun.
