My sister draws in GIMP

22 Jan 2005

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you a scenery painting by my 7th standard sister Swathi using GIMP !! :)

'The Sea' as imagined by Swathi

Note that I've only taught her to use Linux and open GIMP, she learnt how to use GIMP by herself.

I explained her the concept of 'Undo' - she says she'll use it to make better paintings in future!

Nitin says:

Real a gud work ... Just cant say its her first time with GIMP !!!

Swaroop C H says:

Nitin: Its not her first time, but I guess this is her first 'serious' painting she has done with GIMP. I didn't even know about it before... I was reading some stuff on the net, she came by and said she wanted to show me something! I was so impressed, that I had to put it up on my blog for the world to see :)

Sriram says:

Hmm..see if you can get her a Tablet PC. Trust me - that thing is meant for stuff like this

Swaroop C H says:

Pradeep, Abishek, Neelima : Sis says thank you to all :)

Swaroop C H says:

Sriram: Any idea how much a Tablet PC costs?
