Puddle Graphic

Paint me a butterfly! :)

Indian-miniature painters of the Kangra school used brushes so fine that they were sometimes made of a single hair. A painter of Indian miniatures would often apprentice for ten years before he was allowed to pick up a brush. The colors used by this school of artists were made of such strange substances as crushed beetles, ground laps lazuli and blood.
