The Wedding : My Big Project

Hello Readers...!!!

Such a long time...!! Ohhh.. Its more than two three weeks...!
But Now I am so exited to tell you why I was not able to post anything..!
And "My Big Project" will fill that long gap with this longest post..!!! All my Painting and its all small small detailing..

This is "My Big Project", that I am doing for an Indian Restaurant " Spicy Garden" which is located in Maryland, USA.

To give different look to the Restaurant, we added some Indian Flavour on tits wall in terms of Indian Style painting, describing Indian Traditions...!
And what will come to your mind first except "Indian Wedding".
 Indian style wedding is World Famous now so we took that as "Theme".
For that I have to make 14 canvas of size 24" x 30" each.
I have done "Wedding Scene" on 7 Canvas, and rest 7 is a "Baarat /Bidaai Scene". 
I have chosen "Mughal Art " style, belong to North India for this, as I think Its perfect for this Project.

So Here I Proudly Present "The wedding".
I really don't know where to start, Because 7 big size frame, I even can not click a perfect picture togather..!
For my Above Picture, ( All 7 togather) I have to edit them, to make my complete Painting.
Thats me (Below Image) with "My Big Project".

 I am starting from left side..
This is the inner area of Palace, where the Wedding ceremony is held.
You can see Palace area, its terrace , Window & Royal style Curtain..!

This Image Below is "Band Baaja", The musicians.
Three musicians with different instruments, Nagada & Shahenai.

To see its Details, check images below...

No wedding is possible without "Band Baaja", so its my small attempt
to show that..

And every wedding has some Witness, .. Are "Baarati" Bhai,
and Indian wedding without "Pandit", not possible..
So the next painting is showing Baarati groom Groom side & Priest...

And to see its details, here is the detailing part..
 Some Flower shower for "Mangal Fera"..
The Priest,Pandit Ji so important, so he has his Aasan & Shlok book in his hand.

Wedding scene without Bride & Groom..!! Not possible...
So the forth painting, the center piece is Bride & Groom..
"Mangal Fera" in presence of everyone & Agni Dev (Fire).

I have tried to show some traditional things like Kalash (Pots) with Green leaves, & Mandap with Banana Leaves..!!
And here is detailing of Bride..!!
Traditional red & green dress and all jewelry..!!!

The Groom with Royal Blue drees & Holding Rose.
And "The Knot" - indicates relation "Husband & wife".

And here you can see All detailing of Mandap,
Banana Leaves & Pots with Leaves.
The next painting, is witness from Bride Side and Priest..!

And Woman will be Woman, they can't stop talking & gossiping..
Well, that's the beauty of nature & its My favourite part of the entire Painting.
I just love this image..!!
Detailing of Flower Basket.. It has some flower there..!!

The Priest.. with Mantra book in his hand..!

Next painting is also with musicians, but from Bride side..!!!
They have Dafli, Sitar & Dhol..!!

Painting Woman is always fun for me..!!
and I really enjoyed this..!

Woman with Dafli.. where The instrument is the connecting part between two painting.

Woman with Sitar..... Ahh.. I was very confuse if this colour will look good or not, but it worked..!

Woman with Dhol... And I experiment with Hair Braid..!
It looks really nice..!!

And the last painting is another part of the Palace,
with terrace & window, with Royal style of curtains....

Well, my project has not Ended here...
Still 7 paintings to come...
These days I am trying to finish it as early as possible, so that I can compete my "Dulhan"...

I'll post "The Baarat / Bidai" very soon....
Take care ..!
