Oil on Canvas, 19" X 14"
I just finished painting this scene today. Yay! this is my first oil painting and am quite satisfied with the results.This scene was referenced from a photograph taken by me from the train ride to Jungfraujoch (top of Europe) in Switzerland during my trip to Europe. I have to admit, personally, that oil painting is a messy affair, what with the smells of linseed oil and turpentine right under your nose! Nevertheless, I enjoyed painting with the satisfaction of the beauty of the Alps slowly unfolding on the canvas.The beauty of Alps is truly mesmerising and I felt I had taken the trip again during the whole time I was painting. I have many more photos of my trip and plan to do some more in the course of time.
Here is me, enjoying the train ride :)

Acrylic on canvas, 18"x13"
After seeing so many beautiful snow paintings lately, I felt like painting a winter scene too. And here is one, from one of my handy references. Alas, it never snows in my part of the world, but, painting this scenery did help get into the mood. One of the joys of painting! :)
