This is a pretty good introduction to the painting techniques in many of India's famous wall painting sites such as the Ajanta and Ellora caves and the Brihadeshwara and Kailashnath temples. It includes a discussion of wall painting procedures written in ancient Indian texts like the Vishnudharmottara purana and Shilparatna as well as more technical information about the materials used in the paintings from archaeological reports and scientific studies. Of course, recent scholarship using a better developed historical insight and more sophisticated technology for the material analysis of the caves have emerged since, but this book is still quite worth a close read.
