Camel and Man

Date of creation        : Jan-98

Size of picture          : 9" x 6"

Medium                      : Oil paint on oil paper

This is my first oil painting. Till this day, I used to do only pencil sketches. I had given up painting long back. When I did this painting, it took 8 days to dry it! It was winter time. Later on I learned another art that's very essential for doing  oil paintings, patience! But this patience really pays off when the picture is completed.

When I showed this painting to my friend, Venu, who had introduced me to this wonderful art, he coolly suggested that I should paint this picture again. Because I had used too light colors in the painting. I was slightly taken aback because of this. But nevertheless I did it, and with wonderful results. Now I use bright and vibrant colors in all my pictures.
