Paintings depict themes such as Wars, fights between animals, gathering of women, Krishna and Radha, ceremonies, festivals, court scenes, gardens, forests, palaces, hills and valleys, deserts and hunting scenes. The different painting schools were identified by the subjects they paint and the use of colors.
The motifs are religious including hunting scenes, Krishna‐Leela, Ramayan, and BhagvadPuran. They use bright colors procured from stone.
The artisans made gods and goddesses, kings and durbars and nature, with muted colors which were influenced by the Mughals.
These paintings emphasized a lot on facial features, like large and curving eyes and rolling clouds. Bani‐Thani, has been an important theme in the paintings of this region.
Motifs made were of landscapes, forests, and hunting scenes. The Marwar and Jaipur schools show a greater Mughal influence.
With change in time artists have started depicting current scenarios in painting using the same style.
