i've wanted to paint buddha for a long time, but was never satisfied with the reference. turns out i had my own reference from a photo at a local museum that i had thought i lost in a computer crash. i found a back up cd... woot!

playing with more texture in my paintings. i thought this was a perfect opportunity to experiment a bit. i used acrylic soft gel to get the woodgrain look. he is also spiced up with metallic gold paint but it doesn't show in the photo.

11 X 14 acrylic on hardboard panel

Wonderful painting:heart:.

I really love how you blend some natural color
along with how you did some brush stroke on your
painting to create some textures.

Keep up the awesome work.
