Pichwais essentially depict the Lord in various 'leelas' with the moon, lotus blooms, peacocks, parrots or cows; and are set in the lush vegetation the artists find aplenty in their surroundings.
Pichwai paintings and the Lotus flower are almost synonymous with each other- The lotus flower was so loved by Lord Krishna
(worshipped as Srinathji in Nathdwara in Rajasthan) that other than holding one lotus in his right hand and wearing a garland of lotuses, even his bed was decorated with lotus flowers. Hence the importance of the lotus in Pichwai paintings.
No prior experience required, it will be a guided session. You get to take home with you a beautiful painting at the end of the workshop.
