Warli Village In A New Combo

I recreated a village scene in the Warli style for a recent commission. Traditionally, Warli is done on brown background with white chalk. Click here to know more about this painting style.

But I decided to give the traditional a twist. Since the bottle was black, I felt using white would only seem too predictable. So I went for a pale yellow, and the results are for you to see.

So there is the palm tree, almost representing the Tree of Life in this setting, because most activities happen around it.

The women folk are busy with the household activities like threshing crop and fetching water from the pond.

A celebration and dancing are also depicted in this village idyll.... where humans, birds, and animals co-exist in perfect harmony.

The fish pond is a new element that I added to the village scene, and I am happy with the way it came out. Hope the client is just as pleased! :)
