Warli Painting - First Attempt

Hello Everyone!!!
The other day I was going over some Indian artist articles on Pinterest and I came across Warli Painting. Warli Painting is a tribal art mostly done by Adivasi from North Sahyadri Range in India. I quickly remembered the Warli print bed sheets mom had for our bed back home. One thing led to another and an hour later after lots og Googled image references and watching 2-3 Youtube videos about Warli,  I was at my desk painting a canvas brown prepping for doing a Warli painting of my own. 

I painted a 8x10 size canvas in brown acrylic paint , let it dry, did a basic sketch of the scene I wanted and started off with white acrylic paint. Half way through I realized that I was making small mistakes as this was my 1st attempt. The OCD  inside me did not let me make a lot of mess and so I decided that I needed some practice before I worked on a canvas. I had a perfect base to work on. Few days back at a Micheal's sale, I had picked up the Canson 5.5x8.5  XL series Acrylic paper book (136 lb). Its heavier and sturdier than the canvas. So I got a little carried away and painted a few pages of it in various dark acrylic colors like brown, black, dark green, navy blue , voilet etc. I'm going to use it as a practice. 

I did my 1st page yesterday night. Here it is for you to see


One thing to note here is that the background is an acrylic color but the white figures are done using a white Sakura Jelly Roll gel pen. It took me 2 hours to complete this entire scene. I hope to improve even more. 

Did you all like it? I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :)

PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding :-) 

Supplies used:

Paper: Canson 5.5x8.5  XL series Acrylic paper (136 lb).
Paint: Apple Barrel acrylic paint - Chocolate Bar
Pen: Sakura Jelly Roll - white
