Portrait of an Indian women. Whoa! the only thing highlighted in the above painting is ek chutki sindoor and I am loving the red color so much.
Tanjore painting, on of its form and creativity depicting the Rajas and Maharajas, is one of its kind and is worth trying. Sensuous in looks and really awe-inspiring.
Do you know the reason behind most of the spa’s having paintings or sculptures of Buddha in their interior? Well, one of the reason is to have peace and ambiance in the atmosphere, you must go for a Buddha wall art painting for your home as well…it is said to be like “an invitation to the positive energies“.

Its actually quite tough for beginners to learn painting on canvas with large-sized canvas. I think these small wall arts are great enough to learn painting techniques and display it beautifully.
Let me start off with the stuffs you need for oil painting.
Materials required for Canvas Painting:
1. A piece of canvas.
2. Oil paints, thinners and oil as medium. Commonly used linseed oil, safflower, walnut or poppy oils.
3. Brushes of different types, from flat fans brushes to the liner ones.
4. Knife to mix the colors & color plate.
