Oil painting lesson with Gregory Smith

First session. I gathered together interesting stuff and put them on a table. Here comes Greg’s magic. He always has a fascinating way of composing. I need to develop it. 

I think I did a good job this time for an initial sketch. Not drawing at all, and quick. 






Work in progress. 16x20 in.

I am Dynamite, A Life of Nietzsche

Another great audiobook from Belinda Audio, written by Sue Prideaux and read by Nicholas Guy Smith. 



The best book I’ve ever read about this philosopher. Extensively researched by the author, but never boring. Also I liked the way the story is narrated, very comfortable to my ears.

Plein Air Oil Painting

In the afternoon I did a small painting.
I’m standing at the corner of Bay St and Rouse St in Port Melbourne. In front of Isshin Izakaya. 
I spent 2 hours. 
There’re some obvious errors in the painting, so I fixed them at home.
