before sharing this painting , i must say that this painting was a result of my inspiration for kerala murals
kerala mural is the fine paintings on the walls of ancient temples and churches in kerala , the subjects mainly being deities and the mythology.
now more on murals from the net
The mural of Kerala is very much related to Dravidian art of Kalamezhuthu. This was much more developed from the customs and religious rituals . It was the art of sprinklings and filling up of attractive colours inside the outlines of drawings. The architecture and murals are also influenced by pal lavas.
The Sanskrit text silparatna, describing painting and related subjects by Sri kumara must have been a role model for contemporary and later artists. There is no other text instead for it till now, which precisely discuss about the aesthetics and technological aspects of Indian Arts.
I am Subha alias Reshmi ,an art enthusiasist and above all...an enthusiastic learner, brought up in Chennai,India. Right from my childhood ,I was fascinated by nature. I always feel that nature has forced me to doodle with my brushes and paints.I work with oil, acrylic, pastels and watercolor and have exhibited my paintings in art exhibitions in Howard county, Maryland,USA .I am a member of Howard county arts council and have also participated in the art sale event conducted by them http://www.hocoarts.org/. In my blog I would love to share my experiments with new techniques of painting and discuss the mistakes I encountered. I believe this endeavour would help me sharpen my artistic skills and broaden my knowledge in painting, thus help me grow to be an accomplished artist .
At this point what comes to my mind is the last stanza ofRobert Frost's poem Stopping by the woods
"The woods are lovely dark and deep,
but I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep,
and miles to go before I sleep."
