Wow!!…They fascinate me a lot!.. Wherever I see any Tanjore painting, I take time and watch all the intricate details, the beauty of the figures, painter’s patience and perseverance. The art form itself is so interesting. Yes. It is 50% art and 50% craft. Needs back breaking work.. But the result is well worth it and very satisfying!!I learnt Tanjore painting last year from Mrs Usha Srikumar(near vijayanagar bus terminus,velachery). A very good teacher indeed . She let me draw the full painting, helped me wherever needed and taught many short cuts. I really have to Thank her, for without her I donno if I would have had confidence start my other Tanjore paintings.
I especially enjoy Krishna’s rounded face, chubby cheeks and dreamy eyes in TP and it is obvious guess for anyone, my first TP was Oonjal Vennai Krishna. J My Ganesha was a gift to my in-laws and my Muruga was a gift to my parents.( It is Raja alangaram of Palani Murugan).
I have done a Saraswathy till muck work(work in progress for long time ). Yet to complete it.
Sorry for my bad photography at places :(.Hoping to improve on it.
