In Honor of the Maharajah by MaidenFayth In Honor of the Maharajah by MaidenFayth
This is one of my most favorite pieces and makes the frustrations of watercolor worth it for me! This painting also one first place at my college's student art show.

I'm finding myself falling in love with indian culture and traditions...as well as elephants! ^_^ Taking from their culture gives me so much freedom to express myself with color and intricate patterns.

I outlined my elephant sketch with red india ink and then proceeded to paint and lay down large salt crystals to add texture. Ignore the light spot on the elephants ear! >_< I guess i forgot to continue...painting there...I dunno what happened.

Hi Maiden Fayth

I would really like to use this image for our new Yoga centre in Coventry uk. Would you allow us to use this image please, we don't want to breach any copyright rules or laws.
The centre is a not for profit and our group try's to help people with addiction.

Please say yes, or email me direct on d.chahal@hotmail.com

Many Thanks

Dalj Chahal

Hey. This piece is awesome :) Used your piece as artist research for my art coursework. Hope you don't mind. If I can i'll put the finished piece on . As an Indian I know what you mean when you say that you're falling in love with the culture and tradition :)
