Painting is part of my ongoing series “Vatsalya” (maternal love).
The inspiration for the painting is from seeing elephants in their natural habitat during our trip to Kerala, India (South India) a few years back. Kerala is home to the largest domesticated population of elephants in India. Painting is a portrayal of the maternal bond between mother and calf.
Painting is done getting influenced by Madhubani style. Madhubani style is one of the traditional forms of Indian folk art practiced by the women from the Madhubani district of India. The style is known for its two-dimensional imagery, colorful compositions and no negative space. Negative space is usually filled in with, elements of nature. Traditionally, the subject matters for the paintings are Hindu god and goddess, nature and weddings.
The signature components of this style offers me a vivid color palette and serene background to portray my subjects.
