First Expositie

I keep mentioning my love for Painting on this blog so those who have been reading it knows about my it and how i wanted to learn Oil painting !

Year 2010 started with a new joy as that meant we were going to have our first Oil painting lesion finally.
We started it in a traditional way, the way Oil paintings were done in 17th century.
Ok i didn't mind how and which way, as far as i was learning how to do it!

Two weeks and two lessons after we were ready with our canvas preparation, drawing of composition and base colours and it was the day we were going to put the Oils, finally.
So happy i was since morning ! Finally, yes finally we were there !

But alaaaas, Not yet.

Our instructor/ teacher Derek had something else in his mind. He informed us that he would like to put our half-done paintings on display in the coming Exposition. He had thought over it that it would be nice to display our work as well with others even though it was work -in progress.
So nice of him !
But wait, Doesn't that mean we have to start over again ! Ohh ya, it did.
Best thing that atleast our work got a place beside so many other nicely done works.

This Monday evening, during the Painting class a classmate, Ruud, was taking pictures of whole class. I thought he is taking the pictures just like that, as many times we take pictures to remember our compositions when we have to continue same in the next lesson.
But his e-mail arrived as a surprised as it contained the link of his website where he had uploaded them all along with pictures of our half-done paintings displayed in our institute's Exposition 2010.

I liked his idea and so though to share a link to his website.
If interested, you can check the photos of our "half -done" paintings displayed in Exposition and work-in-progress photos of class here.

I really enjoyed seeing these "works in progress".
I always think that it is strange how people can see things from a different point of view, and have different perspectives on inanimate objects! Loved this post and can't wait to see more!
Thank you for commenting on my blog, I'm now your newest follower!

Orangesplaash said... finally joined the oil painting class Lopa. Nice work..I have never been much of a painter myself, but would love to do a photography course sometimes!!

@ Alice in Wonderland

Alice, You are such a sweet heart, Thanks :)
Learning Painting is also teaching me about how things can differ when looked from diff angle / perspective.
How painting will look in the end depends on from which angle one is painting and so same thing when painted by different people looks different on canvas.
Doesn't that same thing apply to life as well? Which side we are standing !

@ Orangesplaash

Thanks Arwa.
This is same ongoing painting lessons which is for mix mediums and so now we have started with Oil medium.
Yes I am looking for Photography course as well, but haven't been able to find one in English so far. If you come across something, do let me know as well :)
