DTW 9 – Painting Green Tara pt.4

Digital Thangka Workshop – This week we take a look inside my retreat cabin and have a tour of my meditation space and my portable painting workstation. Its raining outside and there is thunder approaching, so I head into the quiet of the meditation room to discuss a little bit about this weeks painting.

In the video we continue with the shading the lotus stem, I introduce a different method for rendering the highlights and then we talk a little about colour temperature for shaded and highlight areas.

We are getting close to finishing now. I think I am about 70% done. I finish retreat in about a week and will be able to spend more time painting. I imagine I will complete the Thangka fairly soon now… maybe about 4 weeks away now, this one has been an incredible journey.

I hope you enjoy the video and the little tour of my home.

With love,
Ben (Jampay Dorje)
