The creation of the Pattachitra paintings is a disciplined art form. The Pattachitra artists use naturally available raw materials to bring about indigenous paints. The chitrakars maintain rigidity in their use of colours and patterns, restricting the colours to a single tone.In silk painting, the painter controls the movement of pigment within boundaries such as a resist on the silk. Brushes become much less important because the dye will move on the silk after it is placed there. Because the dyes flow so freely on silk, the job of the silk painter is to control the movement of the pigment on the silk rather than its placement. The final step is giving a protective coating. The cloth is given a lacquer coating to protect from the effects of nature and give a glazed varnished look.
Painting by Pramod Kumar Maharana, a veteran Pattachitra artist of Odisha State.
