Watch artist Vaishali Prazmari demonstrate the techniques of miniature manuscript painting. In the one-hour online session, the artist will take you through the process of transferring an image, inking in the lines, colour filling, rendering/shading and painting the final outlines with tiny brushes. The Kalila wa Dimna fables were famously illustrated by miniature painters across different dynasties and the artist chose the miniature format for her displayed work at Kalila wa Dimna: Ancient Tales for Troubled Times exhibition. Vaishali will demonstrate the different painting stages by working on a variety of different artworks and you will get to see a number of different painting types and styles.
