"LAKSHMI". This painting is done on Imperial size 300gsm (140 lb.) Hot Pressed Arches paper with Watercolour and Ink.

 

This painting is an inspiration from the Kalamkari style of painting.

 

KALAMKARI STYLE OF PAINTING

Kalamkari style of painting has its root in Golconda, Andhra Pradesh in India, and flourished under the patronage of the Mughals. The Mughals referred to these artists as Kalamkars giving the art its name. Kalamkari is basically a pen art form and has its roots in storytelling by painters and musicians who were known as Chitrakattis. This art has been practiced by many families in Andhra Pradesh over the generations and is the primary source of income.

 

The traditional Kalamkari art was done on cloth initially stiffened by dipping it in astringents and buffalo milk and dried under the sun. Dyes were extracted from plants. The red, black, brown, and violet portions were outlined with the pointed end of a bamboo or date palm stick. The cloth is then covered with wax except for the parts which were to be coloured blue. The fabric is dipped in indigo dye. When dried the wax is scraped off and the remaining portions were painted by hand.

 

Lakshmi is considered to be the goddess of material abundance, affluence, affluence, authority, and auspiciousness as per Indian mythology.
