Service Description

PAINTED LADIES SERIES A beautiful series featuring and painting women - we've been building up to this. May is a gentle green-blue lady, and the lady with the lamp. I've chosen ladies in different figural positions to get a comprehensive view, and the variety of activities they were engaged in, including having fun on swings, combing their long and beautiful hair, thinking and gazing, running from the monsoon, sniffing flowers, waiting for lovers and scattering fireworks. There are actual portraits of known ladies (princesses such as Nur Jahan and Jahanara) including the famous turquoise lady. I'm really excited about this series as a counterpart to the heavily male faces of last year, and we bring it to a balanced close with a couple in love as a prelude to the Love series next year (love in all its forms). This is the powerful and proud Jahanara, Mughal style. She is clutching a letter - who knows what it holds? This one is currently on display at the Ritblatt gallery at the British Library in London (free). I recommend you watch the Bollywood film Jodhaa Akbar, starring Aishwarya Rai, set in Mughal times for some costume opulence sparkly architecture inspiration. Upcoming sessions include: NOVEMBER - Lady at night, and a sitting nayika DECEMBER - Couple at night with fireworks, a precursor to the Love series next year More info on Forum: Forum link in main menu
