Pipal Leaf Paintings

A new addition to the Etsy listings is a group of five pipal leaf paintings made in India.

Most likely painted in oil. Process: Green layers are removed from the pipal leaves by a special process. The Skeletal leaves are then compressed for strength and long durability. They're then painted and sealed.

Click the title above to see this beautiful Pipal Leaf oil painting of two women - one putting a flower in the other one's hair.

The total finished size is about 7" X about 9". The leaf is about 5 1/4" X about 7". The leaf is mounted on blue felt. The felt is mounted on paper - looks to be archival.
