Paintings and Art

All of the time that I've spending thinking and researching Indian paintings and art has made me want to create some art or a painting of my own.  I decided to not be too picky about what type or anything and just let my creativity flow.  I've been addicted to Astarte's Mega-Zine.  I can't even explain how cool all of the issues are.  For those of you who don't know Astarte's Mega-Zine is an online magazine is stuffed full of art tips and information about art and paintings.  You can check them out here or click the image at the bottom.  I have found all of their issues to be really helpful.  Right now I don't think I'm good enough to post pictures of any of my attempts at Indian painting and arts, but maybe soon.  I would definitely recommend you check out Astarte's Mega-Zine, its very inexpensive and definitely full of lots of helpful things and a great deal.  I can't want for the next issue.

Famous Indian Paintings and Art

All of the different faiths in India have many different gods and godesses.  As such, it seems natural that some of the Indian paintings and art depict these dieties.  I am partial to the painting on the left.  It is called Lakshmi and is by Raja Ravi Varma.  Raja Ravi Varma has painted many paintings showing various Indian gods and godesses.

In addition to his paintings of gods and godesses, Raja Ravi Varma painted many of things. 
 One of my favorites of his is this one seen to the right.  It is simply titled, Lady with Fruits.  It was difficult for me to pick out my favorite painting of his because he has so many excellent ones.  When I decided to make a blog about Indian paintings and art I knew I had to start out talking about Raja Ravi Varma.  He was the artist/painter who got me to start really liking Indain paintings and arts.  I hope you like his Indian paintings as much as I do!
