Fishy fish in Madhubani

Since quite a long time, there was a pending wish such as hands-on for new art but could not get time, perfect mood and also bit laziness to start with new .....was Madhubani art :). I always got attracted toward this art due to its bright colors used and enlightening effect due to black outline :) and attention given to boarders of objects. My last few weeks were just full with exploring about this art, through some Indian art magazines and internet. After some studies of such references I could get confidence to start with my first Madhubani :). This is what I could put myself with this lovely art :).


It is done on natural handmade paper with water colours. I have used black point pen for bordering it.
I will explore few more days with this art and then I have a plan of reusing my mordernised warli concept with madhubani. Soon I will post about it :).
Few words about Madhubani art-
Madhubani or Mithila painting is a style of Indian painting, practiced in the Mithila region of Bihar state, India. Madhubani painting is characterized by line drawings filled in by bright three to five colors and contrasts or patterns.
Traditional Madhubani paintings themes include Ram-Sita, Shiva Parvati and depcitions from daily life, with objects like fish, trees of fruits such as mango and pomegranate and birds like peacock, parrots. Attractive floral motifs act as borders.
Linking it to Colours Dekor's Weekly stories and Paint Party Friday.
Thank you for visiting this post :)
