Drawing Buddhas & Bodhisattvas (e-Book)
This friendly little book is designed to help those interested in learning more about classical Tibetan drawing styles for Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Clear drawing graphs give even beginning artists a formula and methodology to create beautiful and meaningful works of art. Examples of completed drawings ready for coloring or painting are also included. This book is a valuable reference for anyone interested in learning more about traditional Oriental drawing methods and is especially valuable for meditation practitioners. Drawing Buddhas and Bodhisattvas greatly improves one’s visualization of the Buddha during meditation.
In my studies and practice, I have found it difficult to find good thigse graph drawings of various Bodhisattvas and Buddhas. I began researching and drawing thigse proportions with the idea of sharing them with other practitioners and those wishing to learn to draw Buddhas. This is a thigse (proportions) drawing book, not a philosophical text. A qualified Buddhist teacher will greatly increase the richness of experience and understanding for the practitioner. This book is the culmination of 20 years of research and drawings.
