When I started the ‘Indian Art‘ series and ‘Indian Textile‘ series on my blog I read a lot about different art forms and textiles and was intrigued by the beauty of all art forms and textiles around the world. I was determined that I would try my hand on each one of them whether it is art or textile. I have tried art forms like Warli, Madhubani, Gond, Tangle art, and Tye-die pattern on terracotta figurines and now I am trying to paint textile patterns like Ikat, Kilim, Block printing, Kanjivaram and here is one that recently I painted….. Suzani on my elephant. Doesn’t it look wonderful? I liked the combination of sienna, pink, black and white.
A year ago I saw a cabinet painted in a Suzani pattern and I was inspired to do something like that. So I came up with this idea with my personal touch of course.
I loved the way this tray has turned out. Intricate work that is done with a lot of patience.
Let me know how you like it 🙂 Working on some more interesting projects so stay tuned!!
