You might be thinking where I had vanished these days…I had gone to my native place to attend a family function, When I came back I was shocked by seeing my blog hits… It has increased a good number than what I had expected…Thank you so much for the love and support that you are giving me…

On this Occasion of Ganesha Chaturthi I thought of uploading one of my paintings which I completed recently … This typical type of painting is called Kerala mural painting. These are drawn on the walls of ancient temples and churches in south India… But now a day’s we use canvas/clothes to make them.

Only 5 colors are used for doing this painting, white, yellow, red, black and green.. Now a days blue color is also being used…

You should follow some rules before you start the painting. Since these are usually paintings of Gods , our body and mind should be pure and clean, Should pray before starting the painting everyday....Even for painting the eye there are some special days..This type of paintings are very time consuming but you will cherish the output..

Keep smiling
