As well as than draw in India? I will tell
Ya to you about those types of the Indian painting in which ethic materials, that is not an animal origin and not tested for animals are used.
For rock painting in ancient times dyes from local volcanic breeds were used. The images found in Northern India, which age, according to scientists, 25 - 40 thousand years belong to the first rock paintings. The biggest “ " art gallery; is on Vindikh`s plateau (about 800 km to Hugo - the East from Delhi). The main plots are images of ceremonies, holidays and sacred animals. Scenes of hunting meet on images in some regions of India, but they take the insignificant place in works of Old Indian artists.
The most known of petroglyphic works of India are drawings of the Ajanta Cave hollowed in the volcanic rock on the Dekkansky plateau. Pictures are executed by artists who were employed by Buddhist monks. Stone walls turned into the illustrated books about life and Buddha`s doctrine.
The technology of the Indian glass painting is carried out by gluing on the created contour by means of mix of vegetable glue and wood sawdust of semiprecious stones, thin gold plates or gilded metal.
In technology of painting of a kalamkara by means of the burned tree branches taramid which dip in treacle and iron sawdust contours are created. Vegetable paints of deep shades are used for the image of epic scenes.
Artists of style of a stalemate of the cheater treat the temple family Dzhagannatkh located in Puri. In this tradition fabric, cotton or tussar, cover with mix of chalk, a seed of a tamarind, pitch, giving surfaces finishing, on texture similar to skin.
The style of a rangola also known as the alpana and to stakes, is an art of decoration of floors and walls of houses powder from a white stone, lime or rice flour with use of fingers instead of a brush. Many Indian women own this skill and create the real and unique works of art from the houses.
For painting of a madkhubana (internally decoration of the house) and tiny painting phytogenesis paints are also used.
About a list of an elephant and camel bone I will keep silent, having pretended to be the child who closes eyes at the sight of a problem and excludes it from the reality. I hope, these types of cruel art will forever sink into a non-existence soon.
If you live not in India, I will tell about those ethical problems which it is possible to face, having been engaged in painting.
According to defenders of the rights of animals, drawing by brushes from squirrels, kolonok, badgers (only ponder upon this transfer!) almost equivalently purchase of fur. Let small, but FURS, that, from - for whom terribly perish millions of animals.
The most widespread brushes for oil painting - a bristle. And many do not even think of how this bristle is got, whose it and what its true price. It it is simple - naprosto shave off from pigs, usually with live and painless I would not call this operation, happens, and from the dead. And however, what difference? Anyway production of such brushes is accompanied by the most bloody industry of our world.
Now on sale there is a huge number of the synthetic brushes of fine quality capable to replace any natural analog. As for the prices, they not to a namnogovysha, sometimes below. Another matter human habit.
As for paints, at once it is necessary to afflict aquarellists as this paint along with gouache, contains bull or pork bile as softener, that is an obligatory component. Sadly, but fact. To some extent the acryle made completely on a synthetic basis can replace these two paints.
Gouache can also be replaced with distemper. Only it is necessary to show attentiveness at its choice. She is three types: egg (on it all icons are written), casein and having PVA glue in the basis. Respectively, it is necessary to choose the last, fortunately, it enough - is widespread, to find it not a problem. On the drawing qualities she very much reminds gouache, only colors more saturated and pleasant.
Oil paints at the heart of the have a pigment (which sometimes do of insects and animals) and linseed oil. The maintenance of animal components is probable in the following flowers: sepia, purple, indigo, kraplak, carmine (insects), burned bone (no comments), Indian yellow (urine of elephants).
If to speak about oil painting, then it is impossible to miss also the moment of gluing and a primer of a canvas. Many prefer for these purposes to buy ready mixes. In that case it is necessary to study attentively structure of a product as there can be not ethic components. The problem consists that many producers entirely do not write structure therefore I advise everything to do, it is not difficult at all and it is even interesting. The most widespread types of gluing are gelatinous (cartilages of animals) and PVA. Here everything is simple - we choose the last option). Soil personally I do of mix PVA and tooth-powder + some golden color of acryle, for giving of pleasant tone. The ready soil which is available on sale may contain glycerin, gelatin, fish glue, bone glue, photogelatin, a laundry soap, casein and still some muck.
In general in the market of art goods appeared a huge amount of synthetic paints on fabric, glass, metal now and so forth
Art has to bear a certain creative, humanistic and moral idea and should not be under construction on pain and suffering of other beings in any way. To in total you kind and creative achievements!
