The gond paintings are always done free hand. Putting brush straight to canvas or paper, they seldom need an outline or rough sketch. These paintings are characterized by their dots and lines on flat colored background which collectively make up a total graphic. The bodies are seldom in a single colour, but are laid out in beautifully demarcated shades and clean geometrical lines. Every gond painter has developed his own mannerism for painting this subject. Visual ingenuity is not uncommon for the pardhans of the gond tribe of madhya pradesh who make the gond paintings. They smear mud paste on the floors, doors and walls of their homes and then paint motifs on them with a brush fashioned out of bamboo, using colours made from natural materials. In early 80’s some of the pardhan gond painters started painting on paper and developed a most unique style of painting using bright colours and simple forms, decorated with dots and lines. Subsequently this style was popularly known as gond painting. The gond painters love nothing better than to narrate stories behind their paintings. Painted free hand these two dimensional paintings reflect the artists’ perception of life.
