Among my collection of books on Buddhism, “Tibet” by Michael Willis is a personal favorite for its enhanced colors in the book’s photographs. Tibetan monks can be seen wearing majestic hats, which are shaped like crests and appear as if they are rays of the sun upon their heads. Yet there are also more sobering photos of traditional prayer flags that have been reduced to tatters – although still casting wishes of world peace. This 8″ x 7.5″ was painted with both watercolors and ink.
It would seem that photographer David Sims has become one of “my darlings”. Although I couldn’t find the name of the model [depicted just below] who wears this Burberry dress in Vogue’s October 2015 issue. In my 5.75″ x 9″ watercolor, I produced my colorized version.
