Simple warli paintings !
I am fond of all types of indian art forms .Few months back , I bought a kurta which had warli prints on it.Earlier also I had seen those paintings on some wall decors. But this time these warli paintings really caught my attention.They looked simple but so attractive.So I thought I would try my hand at this art.So since then I am trying to learn this simple yet beautiful art on my own and have tried some paintings in my free time .Here are some of my simple warli paintings.
I prefer to do a freehand drawing rather than tracing it from ready design. This is my first warli painting.
1. Warli painting on a canvas – “Family”
I had some canvas panels (ready to use).This is my first Warli painting “Family” on a canvas panel.Here I used a 8″ X 10″ canvas panel and acrylic colours yellow,black green,cobalt blue,white,pink, orange and brown .This is one of my colourful warli paintings 🙂
1.Canvas panel(here I have used ready to use canvas i.e base applied)
3.Paint brush (000,1)
1. Choose a design .
2.Draw the design on trace paper.
3.Paint the canvas(for background) with colour of your choice.We can do shading also.But I kept it plain.
4.Once the paint is dried,trace the design on the canvas using carbon sheet.Choose the colour of carbon sheet depending on your background colour.Here I used black.
5.Draw outlines first.Let it dry.
6.Colour the remaining part using acrylic colours of your choice.
2. Warli painting on terracotta pot. Here I have used black acrylic colour as a base, and few metallic colours and regular acrylic colours.
