Madhubani Painting, also referred to as Mithila Art (as it flourishes in the Mithila region of Bihar), is characterized by line drawings filled in by bright colours and contrasts or patterns. This style of painting has been traditionally done by the women of the region, though today men are also involved to meet the demand. These paintings are popular because of their tribal motifs and use of bright earthy colours. These paintings are done with mineral pigments prepared by the artists. 

For commercial considerations and meet the consumer expectations, the work is now being done on paper, cloth, canvas etc. Cotton wrapped around a bamboo stick forms the brush. Black colour is obtained by mixing soot with cow dung; yellow from turmeric or pollen or lime and the milk of banyan leaves; blue from indigo; red from the kusam flower juice or red sandalwood; green from the leaves of the wood apple tree; white from rice powder; orange from palasha flowers. The colours are applied flat with no shading and no empty space is left.

One of the form of Madhubani Painting, is known as "Tattoo" form characterized by line drawings filled in by bright colours and contrasts or patterns. This style of painting has been traditionally done by the women of the region, though today men are also involved to meet the demand. These paintings are popular for their asthetics and good contemporary look which goes well with the interior decor of the home or an office.

Tattoo Paintings usually comes in small sizes, viz. 6 " x 6" ; 6 " x 9" ; 8 " x 8" ; or 6 " x 11" . Please refer to the framed painting images in subsequent pages for reference. We do undertake supply of framed paintings.

We advise beautiful double mount framing with black or white background and suggest to give 3 to 4 inches of margin at all sides. In this maner, the painting would look very pretty and adorable
