Pigments in Paint
Natural pigments are an important element in the process of making art. This workshop will focus on the activity of making colours from various sources of nature. The powdered pigments procured from Sanganer near Jaipur would be used to practically demonstrate the activity of transferring them to usable water colours. The visual effect of each colour on various papers would also be shown along with comparisons to commercially made colours. These watercolours would be used to paint on handmade traditional wasli paper (the ones especially used by miniature artists in North India) with a tinge of real gold.
The workshop will be facilitated by Tanjima Kar Sekh who is a practicing artist inspired by traditional art. She holds a Master’s degree in History of Art from National Museum Institute, Delhi. She worked as a part time Assistant Professor at College of Art, Delhi. Currently, she is a research scholar at the Department of History & Culture, Jamia Millia Islamia.
