A splash of colour

Applique works of Pipili
Inspiration of this painting came from the streets of Pipili which is on the way to Puri from Bhubaneswar in Orissa. Pipili is known for its colourful applique work and about 50 odd shops displaying this colourful craft adorn the streets of Pipili. I tried to capture that colourfulness of the place and made 2 paintings. This one is the better attempt.
