A bride is the woman who is about to get married or newlywed. An Indian wedding varies from state to state with the simultaneous variations in the shringara of the bride. This painting of the Indian bride is done in utmost perfection in a vintage color combination, but, highlights even the slightest expression of her beauty with the sharp brown eyes and that little curve of her dark lips confused in the mix of sorrow of leaving her family and excitement of starting a new phase of life.
The artist has given a beautiful contrast to the dull background and skin by a pink dupatta that covers her head as a symbol of passing from the protection of one’s household to another. Pink is one of the most popularly used shade in Indian weddings as it is a great symbol of love and beauty focusing on her charming and gentle personality.
The soothing shringara of necklace, jhumkis, nath, maang tika and matha patti shows her as the one belonging to a middle class family. The painter has very beautifully shown an interplay of various colors focusing on the deep thoughts that pass in her mind, as are visible on her face.
