My Paintings

Paintings from the class at Columbus Oh.
I took few painting classes with a local artist named Jim Glover during my stay at Columbus. I am glad I took the classes though it was for a very short time.
The following 3 paintings were completed during the class.

Still Life
9X12 Oil on Canvas
This is the first time I ever completed a still life. The paintings were completed in 1 hour. I was a bit hesitant to go for a still life but I am glad I did it. I never completed a painting in one sitting. This is something I want to learn so that I can do a small study for bigger paintings.

Baby Elephant Hiding from the Sun
9x12 Oil on Canvas
I would not call this my painting as most of the final stores were by the instructor showing me how to change the vegetation colour so that the elephant stands out. My greens were competing with the elephants. I will to try this on a bigger canvas in short time.
