DTW 5 – Repainting Hair in Photoshop

Here is a short video showing the repainting of certain areas of the hair in my image of White Tara. I completed this image some years ago at the request of my Lama and also a good friend who was in a 3 year retreat. The image is a little unusual in that the Sadana I was given described Her hair as Cornflower Blue. I have seen White Tara sometimes with blue hair but it is rare. Another unusual aspect is the position of the topknot. Generally you will see the topknot as centrally located, but I chose in this image to place it off to one side, in the tradition of the Situ Panchen school.

I was never entirely happy with the hair and tonight I decided to spend some time correcting it…

I hope you enjoy this short video,

Best wishes,
Ben.
