Padmasambhava - ball point pen and coloured pencils 2003. This is a rough copy of an impressive thangka painting by Dharmacari Aloka. I was on a retreat for which it was commissioned to be the alter piece, and was hugely impressed by his skill in protraying the magical yogi who established Buddhism in Tibet in the 9th century. I have never been confident enough to use ball-point pen before, but this seemed to go very well.
