Madhubani is an intricate Indian folk art and its popularity is rising with each passing day. Color combination used in this style of painting is bold and bright.

Ganapati or lord Ganesha has special place in Hindu mythology. Lord Ganesha’s blessings is must before starting any ceremony, venture or an auspicious occasion.

Presence of lord Ganesha is believed to ensure success and prosperity. Thus, a Ganesha painting makes it a perfecting gifting option for any life occasion like a wedding gift or a housewarming gift.

So, in this post, I will share the painting a Ganesha Madubani painting. I have done this painting on a A3 sized recycled light yellow color sheet and used acrylic paints to give it a Madhubani styled boldness and brightness.

After the initial sketch of Ganapati, I added the finer details directly with waterproof fine tip black marker pen.
