The Garhwali bride

I visited Indian yarn  yesterday and was fascinated by the photograph in this post about the Garhwalies of the Himalayas.There are several other striking images on this blog. Here is the photograph that inspired me:

Her nose-ring is so impressive and makes such a great subject.
I had to paint the Garhwali bride. Here is my rendition:


 15 cm x 15 cm 
Acrylic on stretched canvas
She has a beautiful antique stain.
I am going to dwell on this subject for a while. 
Can't get over the nose-ring, I simply LOVE it.
Bon weekend à tous.

How fun. I just love the colors and delicious detail that make up all the different cultures. They are so rich in hue and tradition! It's always a feast for the eyes to stop by your blog. I watched the movie "Outsourced" and LOVED the festival of color they showed in the movie.
