Tibetan Thangka Painting Methods & Materials by David & Janice Jackson


 
Tibetan Thangka Painting is the only detailed description of the
techniques and principles of the sacred art of Tibetan scroll painting.
It is the distillation of research carried out over a period of ten
years, collected during five journeys to Nepal and India, and compiled
from some twenty traditional painters. This book presents, step-by-step,
the techniques used to make a thangka from the preparation of the
canvas to the final application of the sacred syllables behind each
completed figure. Separate chapters introduce the reader to the basic
principles of composition, color, and figure proportions. Included are
descriptions of the pigments and how they are mixed and applied. A
wealth of drawings and photographs illustrates each step and the many
line drawings of symbols and motifs drawn by Robert Beer will greatly
aid artists and serve as unique resource for designers. Robert Beer has
also contributed a section which includes valuable guidelines for those
who wish to paint thangkas using modern techniques and commercially
available materials.
