Warli Art was first discovered in the early seventies. While there are no records of the exact origins of this art, its roots may be traced to as early as the 10th century A.D.

For making this art price I have stick drawing paper on old cardboard.

Used poster colors.

I am a woman

Hi friends

My today’s art work is dedicated to women found few good lines about women sharing with all of you .

I am a woman of many talents, and the guardian of my children.
I have the strength of my God, to lead me through whatever Life has in store for me.
I shall look ahead, rather than be pulled back to past sorrows or mistakes, for only by moving forward can I begin anew. I will pray for those I love, that my love may be their blessings, that my prayers will be their strength.
I will love myself, because my Father in heaven loves me even more.
I will sleep peaceful, knowing I have done my best, and no longer burden myself with thoughts of unworthiness, or worry about what other people think…because all that matters is my family.

Bliss of Krishna Janmashtami

I am back with my new water color art work which is dedicated to lord Krishna . As we know Krishna Janmashtami is falling on coming Sunday so lets celebrate the bliss of Krishna Ashtami.

The mind acts like an enemy for those who do not control it.
                                                                                       ~ Bhagavad Gita 

In 3228 BCE in Mathura, India, a child was born who was destined to reshape the spiritual and temporal destiny of mankind—Sri Krishna. In his 125 years of life, Sri Krishna made an indelible impression upon mankind’s collective consciousness—re-educating the world about devotion and dharma as well as the ultimate reality. His life was a model for people in days past, the modern world and surely for those in ages to come. 

The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind .
                                                       Bhaagvad Gita – Lord Krishna

As a human being puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones
By : Bhaagvad Gita – Lord Krishna

Happy Krishna Janmashtami to everyone..!! Stay tuned……..!!

 

Organic Indian Painting: Kalamkari

Kalamkari is an ancient Indian art that originated about 3000 years ago. It derives its name from Kalam meaning Pen, and Kari meaning work, literally Pen-work. The Kalamkari artist uses a bamboo or date palm stick pointed at one end with a bundle of fine hair attached to this pointed end to serve as the brush or pen.

History:

In ancient India, the art of painting using organic colors and dyes was very popular, but this style of painting originated at Kalahasti (80 miles north of Chennai) and at Masulipatnam (200 miles east of Hyderabad). The paintings then used to depict Hindu Deities and the scenes from Hindu mythology. Masulipatnam being a muslim region, the weavers were involved in the block printing art whereas the artists from Kalahasti practiced painting Hindu mythological scenes.

Organic Colors of Kalamkari

Kalamkari art primarily use earthy colors like indigo, mustard, rust, black and green. Natural dyes used to paint colors in Kalamkari art is extracted for natural sources with no use of chemicals and artificial matter. For instance, craftsmen extract black color by blending Jagger, water and iron fillings which they essentially use for outlining the sketches. While mustard or yellow is derived by boiling pomegranate peels, red hues are created from bark of madder or Algerian. Likewise, blue is obtained from indigo and green is derived by mixing yellow and blue together.

The styles of Kalamkari Paintings:

  • Masulipatnam Kalamkari:

Owing to Muslim rule in Golconda, the Masulipatnam Kalamkari was influenced by Persian motifs & designs, widely adapted to suit their taste.

  • Sri Kalahasti Style:

The Kalahasti tradition which developed in the temple region mostly concentrated on themes form Hindu mythology, epics (Ramayana, Mahabharata), images of Gods and heroes.

  • Karrupur Style:

Karrupur is a style of Kalamkari that developed in the Thanjavur region during the Maratha rule.

Here let me share a small tutorial of easy to draw Kalamkari pattern . I am going to draw a kalamkari Cow..

Its finish ……!!

Abstract Watercolor Painting

love everything about watercolor that I love involves fun and freedom. It is such a pleasure to feel paint slide across my paper surface.Once you’ve learned the rules of watercolor painting, it can be fun to break them.


 Below i am sharing one of my water color abstract art work

IMG_20180730_155154207_HDR.jpg

For this abstract painting i have used flatten brush of  number 2 .

used non waterproof pen for outlines.For the background of the painting i have used green -blue colors.on wet page drop the colors and let it bleed .it will provide a natural looking texture to the page background.

When working abstractly, it is key to take inspiration from all your senses and push them into your painting.

All you need are a pencil, watercolor paints, a piece of watercolor paper, a paint brush, and an hour or so of your time, and you’ll be on the road to making your own colorful abstract art!

Tip: When you are done with your watercolor painting, it is a good idea to spray your finished masterpiece with a permanent fixative like Krylon Crystal Clear. This permanent protective gloss coating that will not yellow with age. Moisture resistant and smudge proof.
