This is a painting in watercolor which I was working on the past few days. Kathakali is a dance drama from Kerala.It is a unique blend of various arts like music,dance,literature and even painting.The dress,ornaments and the headdress is remarkable with lot of color and design.The makeup itself takes hours and is special for each character.This is picture of the Nalan a hero, a good character from the drama nalacharitham. The green color on the face and the white ridge like mask represent all good gods and heroes.The skirt is colorful and is voluminous.
I enjoyed painting this.As I look at it more and more I feel I should have detailed it more and taken care to sketch more perfectly. There are so many photos of different kathakali characters and I should find time to do more of them soon.Do send your comments and thank you for visiting.
