Moghul Miniature Painting - Ranthambore

Image
The miniature paintings of the Moghul era had a very unique and distinctive style inspired by Persian art forms. The techniques are broadly comparable to the Western and Byzantine traditions of miniatures in illuminated manuscripts .It depicted real life scenes and historic events as this one here that has been restored somewhat to reveal the probable original bright colors. The scene depicts Emperor Akbar (in white, at top right) directing the attack against Rao Surjan Hada at Ranthambhore fort. The fort is perched on top of a steep rock cliff, and its guns blaze out across a void at the Mughal troops on the facing rocky outcrop. Tents are pitched at lower left, near the men who are constructing 'sabats', or covered ways, in order to allow the army to move nearer to the enemy.

The Antique Necklace of Gold and Jewels at Ranthambore

Unlike other art, fractal art is unique in the sense that the creator does not have full control. He works with certain mathematical functions and sees what they produce. When an image or a portion of an image appears that is promising he may then work on it further to develop it into a pleasing work of art. Because of this two way process, between the artist and the software one does not really know what one would end up with. As for example in my most recent attempt I ended up with an antique necklace of gold and jewels. The Gem stones in the necklace are emeralds and garnets in its most common hues of purple, very widely used in Jaipur State, now district of North Western India. Heavy necklaces of several strands were at times  supported on a velvet backing, in this case red velvet.  The design and colors have a very Royal Indian look to them reminding one of the Kings and Queens of a time gone by.

Back to Digital Art

Although I love oil on canvas, creating a work of art on canvas is a strenuous and time consuming job. Therefore with my other pursuits there has been no time to return to it for the past several years. Nevertheless the urge to create works of arts remains and therefore I returned to something I have done before, digital fractal art. Creating art has a side benefit it draws ones mind away from the turmoil that may be taking place in the world and which the media never fails to remind.
