WARLI PAINTING ON FABRIC
Since Iam not an artist I thought why not incorporate a Warli painting on my little one’s Tee- shirt.
Warli painting derives its name from a small tribe inhabiting the remote regions of
Folk imagination, beliefs and customs are spontaneously expressed in these monochromatic tribal paintings.
Warli is a simple art form using geometric designs, dots and crooked lines.
Warli paintings are usually done in stark white against earthern backgrounds, but my little one wanted Red on her T-shirt, I used a red color for the motifs but highlighted it with a white color just for that dash of originality….anyways the background is blue, so we are not incorporating authentic Warli painting….. so here is a variation. This one is for my little one.
Iam planning to do a proper Warli painting later…..

Here is what I drew on the front;
On the front I drew a family of four, A man, a woman and 2 girls, which is a depiction of our family.
The woman in the picture is me (Mamma, with bangles in the hand and a bun on the head, I don’t wear both, but this is just to depict the difference in the pictures),
My 5 year old has a pony tail and my little one has curly hair so the older one insisted I draw curly hair for the little one. Here is a close-up of the Tee-shirt (on your left)
On the back I wrote,
“WE ARE FAMILY, MY PARENTS AND MY SISTERS AND ME”…My little one is a Simpson’s fan.
Since this was my 5 year old’s Tee shirt, Art has been altered to suit to her needs.
