Gond Watercolor Painting
Paint & Relax
I have been spending more time working on my sketching and painting as of late. It is the perfect way to relax if I don’t feel like doing anything that requires mental focus. Not every time I sit down is it a successful time but I am trying to remember that practice makes perfect. Perfect is a long ways off but it is something to aim for.
My home is globally inspired and cultural/folk art has always been on my list of things to DIY. If you saw my living room tour your noticed that my home has a lot of Indian influence. When looking into Indian decor I noticed that there were so many different painting styles. If you are interested in reading about them there is a bit of information HERE.
Creating the Painting
I chose Gond Painting because it is nature inspired and I love the elegant lines of the animals. I found a traditional painting online and sketched it onto watercolor paper.
I took some liberties with my shading which deviated from the original picture.
I really love the patterns that are included in this art style.
And here is the finished piece. Now I just need a frame.
I am playing along with Elizabeth and Bleubeard for T Day. I don’t know if you remember but last week I shared all of the tea that I won from Tiesta Tea. I opened the Maui Mango and here it is. Isn’t it beautiful? And the taste was just as amazing!
And my little sweetie wanted to smell the tea and pose for a picture. Cute, huh?
Happy Tea Day,
