We already know about Thangka painting in privious blog post Sacred Buddhist Painting "Thangka". Thangka is a type of painting executed on cotton canvas and often framed with silk. They depict images of different gods, goddesses, and significant philosophy related to Buddhism. Regarded as the essence of reverence, these paintings are a medium through which the highest ideals of Buddhism are evoked.
However, many Buddhist monasteries still use the paintings as a means of financial and spiritual support. They use natural stone color and gold for painting a thangka.
There are Two style of Thagka Paintings
Tibetan Style and Newari Style, here you can read small discription about diffrence between Newari and Tibetan Style. read full post at Types of Thankgka Paintings

NEWAR THANKA Newer people has historically made up in majority of the population of Nepal's kathmandu valley. Newari arts had a great influence on the development of Tibetan paintings. The arts flourished later in the 15th and 16th century. Tibetan reliance in newar style in painting was finally replaced by distinctly Tibetan style. The existence in constant assimilation, adoption of new ideas in a vibrant cultural resulted into two developments in Tibetan paintings in 15th century based on Indo-Newar and primarily Chinese elements. Newari art has the huge influence, evident in style over Tibetan painting.
