My First Canvas

Hello Friends,

How are you all doing Today ? I hope you are good. So I guess what I was trying to tell you all yesterday was that I have created this blog to share my work and my experience with all of you. So here it is, let me know what you think about it...

This is the First Canvas painting I ever made, and I can never forget it. It is one of my pride moments of work. I did this one after my High School Exams were over. I had 2 months of vacation so I joined this art class and my Guruji asked me what I'd like to make first. Whenever I saw any movie with some artist in it, they were always painting these huge canvases, and  I always wanted to be like one, so I told him I'd like to paint a canvas. He said fine, I was very happy :) So next day he gave me a list with a bunch of stuff on it to get, you know, oil and colors and paints,.. and all that. So I got everything, then he gave me a canvas and this picture and asked me to draw it first, I was so happy I couldn't wait, but little did I know then, once you make an error on a canvas, it does't erase with a eraser, the gets light but it doesn't go away. And I made so many mistakes, in fact at one point he had to coat it with a layer of pop and ask me to start over. I spent the entire 2 months trying to make this painting, I got scolded so many times, and finally this is what I achieved, I know it is not as good as the original painting must have been, but I am still very proud of this painting, and out of all the canvases I have made ever since this one still remains my favorite.
