As the name suggests, miniature paintings are colorful handmade paintings very small in size.
One of the outstanding features of these paintings is the brushwork which contributes to their unique identity. The colors used in the paintings are derived from various natural sources like vegetables, precious stones, gold and silver. Miniature paintings are made on a very small scale especially for books or albums. These are executed on materials, such as paper and cloth. The Palas of Bengal are considered the pioneers of miniature painting in India, but the art form reached its zenith during the Mughal rule. The tradition of miniature paintings was further taken forward by the artists of various Rajasthani schools of painting, including the Kishangarh, Bundi Jaipur, Mewar and Marwar.
The brush used is made of Squirrel hair, as it has an incredible holding capacity so you do not need to keep dipping your brush in the paint or water and if you squeeze it out it is great at lifting color and water off the paper. Most of these miniature paintings depicted the lifestyle of kings and queens and also narrated their tales of bravery. Some of these paintings were also created to showcase the contribution of various rulers towards their respective subjects and kingdoms.
