Welcome to Ravi’s

Aug 22, 2008 by     3 Comments    Posted under: Mixed Media, Paintings

Most people ask me how I proceed with a painting. Well, the best way to answer is through pictures. Before i start a painting , i research,sketch and have a clear idea of painting’s outcome.

The first one for Ravi’s is with the theme, “Welcome to Ravi’s Indian Cuisine”.

What they want?

They want a beautiful Indian girl representing Indian tradition.

My idea:
The first thing that came into my mind while thinking of “Best Indian tradition” that everyone knows is …..”NAMASTHE”

So the beautiful girl in my thoughts is none other than “BAPU BOMMA”. I think no one can ever paint a Telugu girl like Bapu and I always want to reproduce them.
The result is the beautiful girl from “Bapu’s Subhodayam”

Then comes the tradition,” Mango leaves and bells at the entrance Gopuram” and “Muggu or Rangoli”

I added my new ceramic work along with special coloring technique and finally my dream picture came into life.

Here is the slideshow of step by step process:

Final outcome

Ceramic powder , plaster of paris and paper powder for all the 3D work
