Oil Painting lesson with Gregory Smith - Day 4

I'm still drawing. Today's theme was 'hatching'.
I don't think I did good drawings. I'm not used to pencil drawing and I've never done hatching technique.
I usually use a charcoal and I smudge it to create a 3D effect.

He told me how I should think about volume and tone, whether the shapes curve away from us or towards us. That determines not just density of hatching lines, but also the angle of them.

I really enjoy his teaching. He keeps asking me a question, and I have to come up with my answers one after another. 

That's really exciting, I feel like having a discussion with a philosopher.
He is in a sense, a philosopher of art.
