My First Warli Painting!

I do not have a knack for drawing or painting. I Always used to wonder about my brothers, sisters and friends who could draw, shade, sketch and paint so well. When I came across Warli painting, my inner self told me, "I think I can paint, this seems bit easy". 

Googled and got plenty of information about this folk art from Maharashtra. Its earthiness and simplicity has its own charm. These paintings are nothing but the depiction of everyday life, culture and celebration by the people of warli tribe..

So here is my first attempt towards painting - My First Warli painting on a coffee mug!

 First trial...


Bit more colorful...



Lessons Learnt :
  1. Learn some painting skills from the educated
  2. Buy a thinner brush
  3. Stop worrying too much about the outcome of the painting 
  4. Paint some more

Good One Nive.Is this paint water proof? or just for decorative purpose? I kind of fell in love with oil painting after visiting art museum.

Yes it is just a decorative piece only.I have used normal Acrylic colors, I doubt if it resists water. So when is your masterpiece coming up!?
