Traditional Rangoli outside ...

I tried to give a traditional touch by painting rangoli on the walls outside my house.
I chose two designs depending on the size of the wall area.

Here it is ..

Warli in my house

This is the warli painting on wall, near the stairs after all the remodelling. We had asked the painter to apply the terracotta base coat on the wall.
We had to do when my daughter is not around, as she would smudge or try her hands on :)

Needle work

My Needle is sad, that it is not getting its turn to enter in the blog.
So thought of putting few of needle's work. :)
I havent taken many pictures, so only posting the ones in my laptop.

Water colors

First attempts..

Flowers ..

Still life ..

It seems that water colors is the hardest medium, as u have to be quick and the paintings cannot be corrected. If we apply colors again, the paintings might have have the freshness.

Here are my few attempts of getting my hands dirty.
