Gond paintings can best be described as ‘on-line work’. Lines are used in such a way that it conveys a sense of movement to the still images. Dots and dashes are added to impart a greater sense of movement and to increase the amount of detail.
Artworks such as these have been done from quite some time now. They resemble aboriginal art from Australia and can sell for anywhere between INR 2,000/- and INR 2,50,000/-.
This is a simple form of painting which all of us can try. So, this is how to get started:
Oil Paints/ Watercolors
Paper(Canvas/Ivory/Normal drawing paper)
Lets get started!
Draw a rough pencil sketch.
Use bright vivid colors to paint the sketch. Then, draw a black outline.
With the help of lines, dots and dashes try to create a pattern or design of your own. The following patterns are frequently used.
Now, draw that pattern with paint on the painting.
We can use different colors for detailing to create an overall effect.
So TADAA! That is going to be your mini masterpiece, ‘Gond painting’.
