Painting in a public space

Right after the Madhubani art workshop with the tribal people, we all have decided to continue their practice. Anand Dutta and Mangesh Jha took this group of art practitioner to the Jonha Water Fall, a nearby tourist site where they all painted the small pieces of beautiful wall mural. These were the amazingly out of expectations. I was in Varanasi and when I got these images of mural pieces, I was speechless. Only after a single workshop, these people developed their passion for art. Here are some pieces of their murals which was created in absence of any guide.
