Pankha (Fan) - I have
painted a traditional Indian Pankha (fan)
The design is very Indian too using paisleys, leaves
and other Indian design elements. This Fan (Pankha)
is mainly used by people in the indian state of Rajasthan
where it is hand painted or decorated with various
kinds of embellishments like mirrors, shells etc.
As the fan is used to provide Air in the hot weather I
have used cool colour scheme. This has been rendered
using poster paints and also follows the design principle
of symmetry.
Pankha (fan) design - I have
used the hand painted Pankha (fan) as in the previous
slide and made an ethnic design with it. I have used
the fan in repitition and below that created a patten
using semi circles signifying the basic shape of a fan.
in the pattern the white semi circles are used to form
the word Pankha (Fan).
Patang (Kite) - I have
painted a traditional Indian Kite (Patang in Hindi).
The design is a 2 Dimensional design done using
different textures and i have used mainly warm colours
as these complement the colours of the sky.
In india, 14th January is celebrated as Makarsankranti
which is a festival when people fly kites which really
inspired me to do this design seeing how beautiful
the colourful kites look in the wide open sky.
Patang (kite) Design - I have
used the hand painted Patang (kite) as in the previous
slide and made an ethnic design with it. I have used
the Kite in repitition and below that created a patten
using triangles as a kite is made up of 4 triangles.
In the pattern the white triangles are used to form
the word Patang (kite).
