Warli Tree of Life...
This picture was an inspirational one.
Anjali Vaidhya is the person who did the painting of this picture and am happy that i made some justice to the work .Thank u Anjali
One should have lot of patience while doing this...
Lot of small small details...
I used a textured white handmadepaper,poster colours for this
Just take a theme in warli as i did and work on it... it takes a lot of time to give a perfect finish though mine is not one :)

Warli Peacock

Its a Warli Peacock.After a long trial and error version i got to do this work.This work is done on a Handmade paper using Acrylic Colours.

Blue Handmade paper
000 Brush
White Acrylic  Colour
Trace Paper
White Carbon Paper
Warli Design (u will find many in net)

How to do ??
1.Initially i drew the design on to the trace paper

2.Then i traced it using a white carbon sheet on to the Handmade paper.

3.After i traced it i used a nib to draw the wings of the peacock to get perfect lines.

4.You get these kind of nibs in the stationary shops.

5.I dipped the nib point in the white acrylic colour and gradually drew the lines of the peacock wings.

6.Draw very patiently eats your time

7.I painted the tree using acrylic white colour 000 brush.

8.Its done..

9.Here i preferred acrylic colour  for a shining finish..poster colours can also be used.

10.Shake the paint bottles before you use it because sometimes the colour and the water content is separate .to get the perfect colour shake welll...

11.The pic is done

How to do Warli Painting ????

Warli painting ....
Ever since i started to learn warli it has been a flop show..Though it seems to be simple... i had a very tough time on it .I just wanted to post this as it would help someone like me who is new to warli.

Very new beginners here it goes
1.Canvas/Handmade paper
Note 1 :handmade paper are of n number of varieties.. get one tht has a flat surface or to put it straight it shld resemble like a plain paper without ups and downs.
For Canvas no issues
2.Acrylic colours/Fabric colours/Poster colours
3.000 Brush
4.Trace paper(if required ) u can do a free hand drawing or else trace the design or draw the required desigh on trace paper and use it
5.Carbon sheet
Note 2 : There are so many colour carbon sheets available in the market so colour of ur choice
6.Warli nib
Note 3:This i got to see in a video tht fine lines are drawn using big and small warli nibs
7.Drawing Ink
Note 4:This also i got to see from the same video that they use this drawing ink for drawing human beings with warli nib.they dip the nib in this ink and draw

In Case of canvas board do give a base colour for the board.
Here for me the base colour is Crimson colour
One of my friend suggested me to give a little lighter shade first on the board and then go for a darker shade
Try to do it evenly else some places will be dark and some will be light.
Better not to mix water else it looks very light ..
Apply the colour straight

For the trace
There are so many designs available on the net .. try to search and based on ur liking either see the design and draw or else trace it

So now the canvas is ready ,trace is ready

Carbon sheet
Here am using Crimson colour as the base and the tribes in White colour so u have to take a white carbon sheet .Pls for heaven sake dont use black colour it spoiled my work for the first try.Even white colour carbon on a dark base colour is risky.

As per experienced ppl suggestion is to do a free hand drawing ,trace can be done for tough work

Do the tribal work patterns using 0 /00/000 brush

Initially go with simple designs

FYI:Keep checking ,will try to update as much as information i get on doing a better warli ;)
