Ganesha paintings in mixed media:
The four examples of Ganesha paintings shown below are watercolours painted on paper. The paintings are faithful to the form of Ganesha but take creative liberties as for the presentation and for the usage of colours. Sometimes the essence of Ganesha is evoked just by a few master strokes or by the use of calligraphy at appropriate places as can be seen.
The five prints shown below are of water colour paintings of Ganesha. Each one is based on the different names of Ganesha. Each one looks different though the theme is Ganesha, as they are the artist’s interpretation and expression of the name. Hence the play of the different elements, attire, posture, colours used in depicting Ganesha is visibly different in each one.
Shown below are some more examples of Ganesha paintings. They are in mixed styles- some simplistic, some with elaborate details, some in monotone, some in a profusion of bright colours. These have been made using watercolours, oil colours or acrylic colours.
Ganesha is a very popular subject for artists and painters. The forms and styles he evokes in the minds of these creative people are endless!
