Mysore Paintings

Mysore painting is an important form of classical South Indian painting that originated in the town of Mysore in Karnataka. These paintings are known for their elegance and gentle colors. The Mysore painting reached its pinnacle under the rule of Raja Krishna Raja Wodeyar.
Traditionally, Mysore Painting was normally done on paper pasted on cloth or wood. After the sketch was made, a distinctive relief world called gesso was done in the areas where jewellery and other ornamentations were to be painted. Gesso was done to enhance these areas. Then they were allowed to dry. In those days artists used vegetable dyes and mineral colors and prepared all the materials they required by themselves.

Mysore, Bangalore, Tumkur, Sravanabelagola and Nanjangud are the places where this art still exists.
