Kalamkari painting – ” Tree of life”

Hi all,

My first post of the new year !!!!

Happy new year 2019 to you all. Lately I have been trying to learn another Indian folk art form, Kalamkari painting.

Kalamkari is an ancient style of hand painting done on cotton or silk fabric with a bamboo pen, using natural dyes like vegetable colours. The word Kalamkari is derived from a Persian word , ‘kalam‘ meaning pen and ‘kari‘ referring to craftsmanship.

So this post is my first ever attempt at Kalamkari painting. This is a tree of life in Kalamkari style.

Images of the steps followed below.
