Painting - Water Colour On Paper
This is my first ever Modhuboni art. This is a water colour drawing on paper with typical modhuboni style, I have reproduced being inspired by the art ''Indian beauty'' by modhuboni artist Vidhushini and uploaded on my website with her permission. http://madhubani.co.in/
Madhubani paintings or Mithila Paintings is a style of Indian painting, practiced in the Mithila region of Bihar state, India.The name is itself named on the village Madhubani Madhubani paintings has been done traditionally by the women of villages around the present town of Madhubani (the literal meaning of which is forests of honey) and other areas of Mithila. The painting was traditionally done on freshly plastered mud wall of huts, but now it is also done on cloth, hand-made paper and canvas.Madhubani art is a form of traditional Indian art form. Madhubani paintings mostly depict nature and Hindu religious motifs, and the themes generally revolve around Hindu deities like Krishna, Rama, Shiva, Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati. Natural objects like the sun, the moon and religious plants like Tulsi are also widely painted, along with scenes from the royal court and social events like weddings. Generally no space is left empty ; the gaps are filled by paintings of flowers, animals, birds and even geometric designs. Objects depicted in the walls of kohabar ghar (where newly wed couple see each other in the first night) are symbols of sexual pleasure and procreation.Legend says that this artform originated during the time of Ramayana when King Janak commissioned artists to paint pictures of his daughter Sita getting married to Rama. Even though this art is centuries old, it has preserved its original style and content in its native land of Mithila. Nowadays synthetic colors are used but traditional artists still make their own colors by extracting them from plants. The coloring is of two styles ? Kachni (hatching) and Bharni (shading.) Kachni uses delicate fine lines to fill the painting and not much color is used. Bharni (shading) uses solid colors to shade and fill the pictures. It uses black outlines filled with vibrant colors. A variety of inventive patterns are made with hatching and stippling. Even now during birth and marriage ceremonies paintings are made on walls with different symbols like bamboo (lineage,) lotus, and fish. The designs announce the occasion of the celebration and solicit good fortune and divine blessings. (Collected from Internet: http://madhubanipaintingsart.blogspot.co.uk/ http://colorofindia.com/madhubani-art.htm http://madhubanii.blogspot.co.uk/ ) I always used to love Madhubani paintings. I wanted toi buy them to decorate my house. Whenever I went to India, I looked for it but couldnt buy any as they were very very expensive. Recently, I thought, why not I try to paint madhubani art by myself! I searched internet and found lots of them. Then I tried to paint being inspired by those from internet and my imagination. Hope you will like it.
