Medicine Buddha/Bhaisajyaguru

This is a digitally made image trying out the potential of layers in the Brushes app. The starting point was a photo of a line drawing done on paper followed by various digital manipulations using graphics apps.  I am enjoying experimenting with the technologies which are coming on line for the iPad.

Avalokitesvara Variations

Here are a set of variations using the traditional iconography for the four armed form of Avalokitesvara.  He holds the wish fulfilling jewel or cintamani, a mala or rosary and a lotus.   The first picture is a gouache commission painted in 1998 
(Go to to see more commissioned work).
The other images were created on my iPad using a photograph of the gouache as a starting point. The apps I used were Brushes and Waterlogue. I am really enjoying exploring the possibilities of this touchsreen technology.


A vase of paeonies - is this cheating? To take my photograph and turn it into this using tcouchscreen technology and an app? Or is it the future beckoning?
