Pattachitra is a folkart form from odisha. This is my attempt of that artform
Amazing painting! Everything looks natural and you had done great job.
Well done! Good choice of the initial drawing and colors too. The way the "saddle" cloth matches the elephant's legs/lower part of the women's torsos is thought-provoking.
What is the size you chose for this creation?
Thank you for sharing. Learnt the actual name for this kind of painting. Looks like pattachitra literally means "cloth drawing/picture" but the painting is done on paper and metal also. Etsy has a section devoted to it!
Kudos to such painstaking awesome work.
2. Extremely intricate designs creativity coupled with patience, of Odisha model - your painting is second to none with those hung in display in huge hall of salarjung museum in Hyderabad.
3. The gopis three - facing the other nine - hidden in or behind elephant with lord Krishna with his musical instrument sitting over it with a canopy of tree is a funtastic creation. The lady replacing proboscis and few of them in recline are all enchanting to the view. So intricate so many details - the painter must have done it over cumulative time .
4. It is not touch and go affair.
5. This art form enjoys GI Tag as that of its counterpart from West Bengal. The painting if displayed among more of it in a large public gallery, would have huge eye appeal or eye popping and would fetch indeed twenty or more grands depending on its size.
6. connoisseur of affluent class would find it close to their heart and would like to have it framed in size 6’x 5’ in reception area.
7. Such pictures speaks volume.
Lord must be pleased with such creations and would continue to bless them in abundance.
Thanks and Regards.
I am trying this but I cant do a good job at it, it is drawn with such fine lines, how do you draw such thin lines?
