Inky Green Tara


I’ve drawn Green Tara many times.
She is based on our Ganges River clay version of Green Tara.
A challenge for me, she is very colorful and detailed, AND,
I am still pushing for a loose wash effect.
I can never seem to do this with the deities!
She got a bit dark fast with the inks, and then I tried laying in a gold pen after.
If I am going to use gold (which is traditional) then I need a finer pen.

Ah well… I keep trying!
Sending you off to look at my first watercolor Tara.
