hi all, I'm Elaine..this is my first post on Craftster!

I'm a seamstress and printmaker by heart, but last quarter in school I decided to try my hand at a painting course.  I used oil paints in all of these...

Our first project was to set up an object and paint it in four different color schemes.  My favorite was one using my entire palette...it's about 11 in. x 17 in.

Narrative, Fight!, 2 ft. x 3 ft.

Metaphorical Self-Portrait, Delayed Gratification, 2 ft. x 2 ft.

I think I'll end up touching up some spots in the last two once I'm done with school and have more time...the hockey painting could use a more effective background and I kind of slacked off on the flesh of the pomegranate.  Overall I'm happy with my first attempts

oh, and I apologize for my photos - the pomegranate is so much brighter in person!
