A Colourful Challenge


It took me several mini sessions throughout the week, and one extended session today, to complete this challenge… a long overdue homework!

When I was in school, a teacher introduced us to Madhubani, as well as Warli styles of painting. She showed us samples of both styles, and asked us to create something in one of these styles.

I loved the Warli style of drawings – mainly because they were very simple to make. The simplicity of the drawings however, did not take away the charm of the designs. I had made several bookmarks – all of which, I gifted away.

I found the Madhubani style of painting rather complicated – it was full of intricacies, and one that would require a lot of patience, as well as colour sense – neither of which I possessed at that time.

This week, I decided to try my hand at this very old homework of mine. I tried to draw a bird, and filled it in with lines, in Madhubani style of painting. I hope the next attempt would be better…

Stories, places, hobbies, musings, maybe the odd poem... Hopefully, all these seemingly random pieces will fit together one day to reveal the grand mosaic that the cosmic universe has planned for me.

  1. Beautiful Painting… What u have made is simply very difficult…. However, one of the most important feature of of Mithila Painting or Madhubani Painting is that the features are highlighted with double lines which are then filled with smaller lines…. Since you have already visited my blog.. You can check the paintings of Ardhanarishwar, Ganesh etc about thing which I am talking about. It will help you with your next work in Madhubani Style. Waiting for your next work…. πŸ™‚
