I work on several paintings at a time. This painting of a Green Buddha was inspired by one I saw on a paper napkin. To add interest to the image I’m adding some white texture around the image using a small sponge.
First I squeezed a pea-sized amount of white acrylic paint on my palette and then lightly dipped the sponge in the paint and dabbed it on the canvas. I carefully spaced the dabs so they don’t bunch up in one area.
While painting this I was curious what the Green Buddha represents and found this from Tricycle.com: “The Green Buddha is traditionally the Laughing Buddha, bringer of prosperity and mirth.”
May this be a blessed year for you!
