Kerala Mural-Paintings of Gods from Gods own country

Most of us, are familiar with Kerala Mural Art. It is originated in Kerala. These paintings represent the rich and colorful  heritage of Kerala. Earlier these were made on walls of temples, depicting many mythological stories. The colorful paintings now has taken a special place in design world. It is becoming popular in dress designing, jewels designing , interior designing etc.

I have already shared about the Kerala Mural paintings made on Bamboo.

In Kerala mural paintings, the bright colors  and the right combination of the colors make you awestruck. The right combination of colors, paired with fine lines with black paint and white background, beautiful and big eyes of the figures and the special technique used for ornamentation of the figures are specialties of Kerala Mural painting.

Recently I tried it on canvas too. Here is the outcome:
