Madhubani Painting

Ever since I visited the Surajkund Mela (For those who are unaware of this Event, this is a craft event which is and annual fair that showcases the finest handlooms, handicrafts, authentic fragrances & flavours of rich Indian cuisines) in Febuary this year, I'am fascinated by Madhubani paintings, for their vibrant and colourful nature. 
I'm more impressed and attracted towards the one's which have nature embedded in them for example the one's with the peacocks, fishes... simply love them.... :)

Here's one that I made 

I love the vibrancy of the colors in it and the contrast :) and it's gonna have a frame soon :)

I have already booked my plans for visiting the Mela again the next year !! and grab some awesome designs to work on :)

I hope you liked the painting, b/w I made this painting on plain chart paper with water colors.. and not the natural one's as used originally in Madhubani paintings... 

Happy Art'ing and Craft'ing :)

Gond painting

I have been eyeing the gond art from a very long time now, the only thing pulling me down from trying this amazing art form was time and now that I have ample of it, I loved making this beauty.

I have tried my hand at making madhubani painting earlier and a preview of the madhubani inspired magnets can be viewed here.

Gond paintings are native to gond tribal community which hails mainly from the areas in central India. India has such rich and amazing forms of art that it's truly wonderful to see and try some of them.
