Be it portraits or abstract art, the artists of the subcontinent have proved their expertise with their master brush strokes. This painting is not only rich in its artistic mien but also in value as it is embedded with 24 karat gold. In this painting, the artist encapsulates a tanned rosy complexioned woman with the countenance that is blessed with a perfectly highlighted Greek nose and thinly set eyebrows that compliment her wide almond eyes and punch pink colored thin glossy lips. Her unkempt dark brown hair twists in lovely strands that rest by her sideburns enhancing her beauty.

The lady is appareled in a scarlet red crop top choli that reveals her smooth and plump cleavage which protrudes through the deep golden banarsi neck. The choli is bordered with a golden banarsi gota that matches the glittery gota of her brick pink georgette dupatta that is imprinted with awestriking circular patterns. She couples the outfit with the a maroon tinted lehenga that marks her bare navel with the outlining golden gota. Her palm is embellished with fading henna designs beautifying her contemplating pose as her wrists twist to reveal the gold bangles that fill her hands contrasting the copper ring that decorates her delicate finger.

The lass's neck is adorned with a gold choker necklace that is embossed with expensive beads that extends down to reveal an elegantly draping pendant necklace that is studded with gems and pearls. Lovely chandelier stone debossed jhumkas droop from the lady's lovely ears going along with her leaf designed intricately patterned maang tikka. Tinted with a jade background the painting brightens to reveal an aureole like design that guards the head of the lady. This painting turns out to be the perfect match for all people who love expensive and ancient designed art and want to ornament their homes in that regard.

Crafting Masterpieces: An Insight into the Making of Indian Oil Paintings

Oil painting is the most interesting technique in art. Unlike other paintings or art forms, oil painting is a process in which colored pigments are painted on the canvas with a drying oil medium as a binder. This medium helps colors blend beautifully to create layers and also makes them appear rich and dense. Several varieties of oil are used in this painting such as sunflower oil, linseed oil, etc., and depending on the quality of the oil, a particular consistency of the paint is developed. With the use of an oil medium, the painting gets a natural sheen on the surface which appears extremely attractive. India is famous for its old tradition of making oil paintings. This art form was brought by Europeans in the 18th century and is now practiced by almost all well-known artists. Nirmal, a small tribal town in the state of Telangana is the center of traditional oil paintings in India where the local people practice it with dedication. Most Indian artists still use the traditional technique of oil painting.

Canvas of the required size is prepared

The artists use either a wood panel or canvas made from linen or cotton. Sometimes the canvas is stretched onto the wooden frame to form a solid base, or cardboard may be used. The canvas is coated with a layer of white paint or chalk mixed with animal glue. This mixture is then smoothed and dried to form a uniform, textured surface. The wooden panel is more expensive and heavier but its solidity is an advantage in making detailed paintings with ease.

Sketch is drawn on the canvas

Now the artist starts to draw the subject of the painting on the canvas using the actual charcoal or a charcoal pencil. Sometimes, he may sketch with thinned paint as well.

Oil paint is applied using paint brushes or palette knives

Now that the rough sketch is prepared, the artist is now ready to paint. Oil paint, a special paint that contains particles of pigments suspended in a drying oil (usually linseed oil), is again mixed with oil to make it thinner for applying it on the canvas. Proper consistency of the paint is maintained to avoid its breakage. The most important rule for the application of oil paint is “Fat over lean” in which the first layer of paint is thin and later, thicker layers are applied. This means that each additional layer of paint contains more oil. This results in getting a stable paint film. Traditionally, paint was applied using paint brushes but now the artists also use palette knives to create crisp strokes. To paint using this technique, the edge of the palette knife is used to create textured strokes that appear different from that of a paintbrush. Sometimes, oil paints are blended simply using fingers for getting the desired gradation.
Smaller oil paintings, with very fine detail, are relatively easier to paint than larger ones. The most attractive feature of these paintings is the natural shiny appearance that is obtained on the surface because of the use of oil paint. The blending of colors looks extremely realistic and this is the reason why oil paintings are loved by everyone throughout the world.
