30 Paintings in 30 Days - Days 3 & 4

TAMASO MA JYOTIRGAMAYA - Oil on canvas, 10x12

Had a challenging time with this one. I was just not able to paint this one continuously for more than 20 min uninterrupted... something or the other that I had to attend to right away... even though I got off to a good start. Ah well! But I figured what type of oil painting brushes work best for me. That was the best part of this challenge. 

Took the reference pic for this on my iphone because I liked the bright yellow orange light contrasting against the blue background. The title 'Tamaso ma Jyotirgamaya' just popped up in my head when I saw the pic. The line is a part of a sanskrit sloka and it means "Lead us from darkness to light".
