Here is a brief note on kerala mural .Without knowing about its origin I simply cannot rest
The roots of the mural tradition of Kerala could be traced as far
back as the seventh and eighth century A.D. The subjects for murals were derived from religious texts. Palace and temple goddesses of the Hindu pantheon.It was not a fanciful representation but
drawn from the descriptions in the invocatory verses or 'dhyana slokas'. Flora and fauna and other aspects of nature were also pictured as backdrops in highly stylized forms.
The most significant drawback of the Kerala mural tradition was that it confined itself with in the stipulations of Icnography. However no other mural tradition has been able to match the linear accuracy of keral murals.
I want to share with you all this wonderful video on digital painting. It requires more patience and time than the traditional one. But I just loved every bit of it.
Digital painting cannot replace actual painting. But alternative mode can always remain a memorable experience.
