African painting on canvas with shilpkar clay

Hi there,

It has been a  very long time since my last post.I had done this work almost 6 months back but somehow couldn’t get time all these days to post  it 🙂 .This is my first African painting .I wanted to give a shot at african painting 🙂 .As I said earlier, I want to try diffrerent things and hope it has come well.I did this simple painting of women on a  8″X 10″ canvas panel.

Materials I used here are:

  1. Canvas panel
  2. acrylic colours
  3. shilpkar clay
  4. paint brush
  5. Tracing paper
  6. pencil
  7. glue

The following images show the procedure

1.First paint the canvas as shown.Then trace the design.


2.Then colour the rest of the part as shown.


  1. Pots are colored as shown…


4.I used Fevicryl shilpkar clay for the ornaments as shown.This is what I got finally……


5.But painted the ornaments using golden colour.


Again few changes were made :-).
