Unlike the monochromatic depiction, I have engaged in a colourful Warli painting. I have been on it for a few days now. So what do you think? I enjoyed creating it....though it looks simple, it does consume a lot of time to complete with it's little details. I personally feel that Indian folk art has it's own charm. I have a soft corner for folk art.

Warli art is an ancient Indian folk art tradition of painting of a Maharashtrian tribe called Warli.. Historians believe that the Warli tradition can be traced back to as far as the Neolithic period between 2,500 BC and 3,000 BC.The Warli paintings essentially depict the basic principles of life which are main theme or basis of any tribe. Their major designs include the harvest season, celebration, wedding, rituals and births. The trademark of Warli paintings is the use of geometric designs such as triangles, circles, squares, dots and crooked lines are used to depict human figures, animal figures, houses, crops etc. Warli art is known for its monochromatic depictions that express the folk life of socio-religious customs, imaginations and beliefs. Predominately white color is used on a red earthen background.
