Najmi Sura has developed new personal style based on our age – old miniature painting. She has blown up the miniature to the size of a canvas but retains the linear treatment of the subject, as in all miniature. Her command over line is noteworthy, especially where she outlines the bare parts of the body in many folds of the flowing dresses. The treatment of the main subject, the figure is meticulous in the old tradition. The depiction of jewelry and border decoration on the dress calls for minute work, but in the treatment of the background she uses free brushworks and sometimes creates rough textural effects.
