Oil Painting Lesson with Gregory Smith - Day 8

Thank Goodness, it cooled down by the time I got to the studio. 

Greg told me to start today by making background and foreground solid with simple block tones. It's amazing how the rest of the painting started to look coming forward. 
The table is a mix of Cad Red and Ivory Black. It creates beautiful tones. 

Then I refined the shell at front, which is a focal point. Greg put White as its highlight with his finger (of course!) and I was amazed how much it jumps out. 

I think it's going very well. 

Work in progress.
