Inspirational: Asian Miniatures

These are some amazing portraits of Mughal emperors and Hindu gods, made between 1600 - 1700. I admire how they combine attention to detail and simplicity. The colour pallette, the patterns on the clothes and backgrounds, the delicate lines and shapes, the expressions on the faces; they all tell a unique story in each of these paintings. They are a pleasure to look at, and so inspiring for study and experimentation.

I found them at BibliOdyssey among many other great pencil and watercolour illustrations.
