Phad painting; made on acrylic on canvas is a style of religious scroll painting and folk painting. This style of painting is traditionally done on a long piece of cloth or canvas, known as phad. Typical colors seen in a Phad painting are yellow, orange, green, brown, red, blue, and black. Each color is used for specific purposes – yellow for creating the initial outline and in ornaments and clothing, orange for limbs and the torso, green for trees and vegetation, brown for architectural structures, red for royal clothing and flags as well as a thick border, and blue for water or curtains. Black is applied at the end as outlines.
