Hi! This is Mahnoor Ali from Pakistan. I am a self taught artist. I use miniature techniques to create realistic paintings. During quarantine i made my first detailed drawing and it was so much appreciated that an old NCA student told me to make miniatures, she told me the tools and techniques and how to prepare wasli. But i searched alot myself too as to be sure about the process. My work starts with staining, and burnishing wasli followed by underpainting and then detailing. I use grid to draw the image on the paper as i enjoy drawing. These paintings are the series of Life On The Water. 1) Bound to purpose 2) Call of simplicity 3) Part of the natural world 4) Resilience 5) Savouring solitude.
Others are the drawings that i started with before jumping on painting miniatures.
