Q1. What does a bird symbolize in a painting?
in Indian paintings are
used by artists to symbolize a variety of elements such as weather, the mood of
the subject, a certain quality, and attributes of mythological stories. For
example, peacocks symbolize pride and beauty, they also represent the rainy
season, and Prema (love) between a couples. Swan or hamsa represents the purity
of mind, parrots signify learning, love, and exchange of messages, and vultures
and eagles as birds of prey represent aggressively and attacking moods. Birds
in general stand for the volatile human mind and soul. Sometimes, as is the
case with Mughal
paintings of birds, rare or foreign bird species are presented in bird
paintings for representational and educational purposes.
Q2. How do you texture paint a bird?
your painting by drawing a rough sketch, use light colors for the base layers
of the bird painting, and move forward by adding additional layers of thick and
darker colors on the feather region and body of the bird. Experiment with
different mediums on the same painting to bring a thick and three-dimensional appearance
to the subject.
