Just before the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, realized enlightenment, it is said the demon Mara attacked him with armies of monsters to frighten Siddhartha from his seat under the bodhi tree. But the about-to-be Buddha did not move. Then Mara claimed the seat of enlightenment for himself, saying his spiritual accomplishments were greater than Siddhartha's. Mara's monstrous soldiers cried out together, "I am his witness!" Mara challenged Siddhartha--who will speak for you? Then Siddhartha reached out his right hand to touch the earth, and the earth itself roared, "I bear you witness!" Mara disappeared. And as the morning star rose in the sky, Siddhartha Gautama realized enlightenment and became a Buddha. (https://www.thoughtco.com/earth-witness-449958)
Day 16: #365daydrawingchallenge Soooooo this is technically a painting lol but I DREW the mango first so that counts right?? 🙃 We went over the color wheel, values and complementary colors today in my adult acrylic class. Everyone did an amazing job. My students have never painted before in their lives, so I was really impressed with their work. We ended class with a mango still life study 😊🥭
Now that my exhibit pieces are done I’m ready to keep challenging myself and create all the ideas that are swirling around in my brain. Took a few moments this afternoon to just sketch and not worry about the finished product and it was so relaxing. Of course, I totally screwed up on the right eye so I took this angled photo so that you can’t tell as easily 😅 I just used a brown @micronart brush pen. Can’t wait to get back into my oil paints though! . . . . . . #ink#hair#originalart#minimalism#hairdrawing#manitobaartist#inkdrawing#pigma#brushpen#eyedrawing
