Back to Blog

So many days i didn't write anything in blog. But i continued to met my guide. Because of 3rd sem exam i took a small break in writing in blog. My guide told me to continue the work of Raja Ravi Varma's paintings. I am thinking of doing "Creating a database for specialised material, eg.
Ravi Varma's paintings using VRA core category version 3.0.
I searched through many cites like, Ravivarma etc.
I got more then 150 pictures of Ravi Varma. Information on web is less.Iwent to CAVA college, because of some reason they told me to come afterwards. I got information from Jaganmohana palace, from the superviser. He gave me a book on Raja Ravi Varma(The painter prince 1848-1906). From that i got titles of paintings, current location, introduction about RaviVarma etc. I try to discribe atleast 5 portraits in VRA. My guide told me to go ahead with this topic.
