This fellow is a 15th generation painter on water and practices his art in a tiny temple to Khrishna in Udaipur. A single painting, accomplished by sifting powdered pigments through fabric on stencils and freehand, can take up to 5 hours to complete and sinks into the water by day’s end. His craft is purely devotional, demonstrating the impermanence of existence. He is supported solely by donations, and sadly his sons are not following in his footsteps, so he is the last of his line. Previous post is video of process. #waterpainting #udaipur
