Oil painting lesson with Gregory Smith - Day 1

Today is the first lesson with Greg.

I'm going to do just drawings for the next couple of weeks, then, monochromatic paintings, and finally using colours.

He's a brilliant tonal painter.
Everything he said today is all about tones.
Tonal relationship from one space to another.

I've never had a formal art training, so it was really a revelation.
It's how we see things without interference of our brain.

I really like his passion, perfectionism and hands-on approach. 
He's very strict when it comes to art, and I like it a lot.

It's just like learning how to cut a hair.

And, this is what he does. Awesome paintings, really.
