I like Raja Ravi Verma. Here is brief introudction about him Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1906) was born in Kilimanoor Palace as the son of Umamba Thampuratti and Neelakandan Bhattathiripad. At the age of seven years he started drawing on the palace walls using charcoal. His uncle Raja Raja Varma noticed the talent of the child and gave preliminary lessons on painting. At the age of 14, Ayilyam Thirunal Maharaja took him to Travancore Palace and he was taught water painting by the palace painter Rama Swamy Naidu. After 3 years Theodor Jenson, a British painter taught him oil painting. Most of his paintings are based on Hindu epic stories and characters. In 1873 he won the First Prize at the Madras Painting Exhibition. He became a world famous Indian painter after winning in 1873 Vienna Exhibition.

Which is your favorite of Davinci's paintings? Only sixteen paintings can even be attributed to him, only about six of those are certainly his, not just attributed to him. A few are actually classified as "cartoons", the preparatory sketch for a painting. One is a painting by his master Verocchio in which the young Leonardo helped to paint an angel. I love the portrait called Lady with an Ermine.

Claude Monet is my favorie.I heard that we can visit Claude Monet"s garden in Giverny.I red that is located 80 km from Paris in the village of Giverny.We can see his house ,water lily pond, Japanese bridge, Grande Allee , flower garden and more.I like Monet because he has a specific way to use colors.As most impressionists Monet uses his own palette to paint shadows black. My favorite paint is "The japanese bridge."
