  2. Salam Alekum,

    You have nice painting regarding Mughals. I am from New Delhi, workin in Dubai.

    I found in one of the site that some family members of Mughal Empire are living in Lahore. Now, the head of the family is Shahzada Mirz Shahrukh Javaid Jah. As we know they belong to a ruling family who ruled united India for a long long time.

    Is it possible if you let me know about them.

    Thanks a lot. Hope for a reply from you.

    • Good to know that u r fine arts student and interested in miniatures. well miniatures is a vast medium and usually done in many techniques like Gouache that is almost done like water colors, padaakh that is done with putting small dots together according to the middle tone darker tone medium tone, this technique can also be done with Gouache technique, another one is neem rang in which along with dots and gouache u can add small amount of thick color as done in poster color technique in ur painting just to give that area a focal point.. adding color with dots differs this technique from padaakh and thus it is called neem rang neem means something in small amount size or shape etc yani urdu main keh skte hain thorha sa and last one is called gad rang it is all done as u apply poster colors but with shading. although painter have introduced so many other new techniques in miniatures but first they deal with the basics that i have mentioned above. i hope u this mail ll help u…if u have any other confusions u may ask again. tc
