Oil Painting Lesson with Gregory Smith - Day 10

Today I started by refining a table. It has some decorations at front, and I tried to make sense of them by capturing patterns of their big shapes. It's all about tones. 

Also I did some work on a cloth. Greg gave me a good tip. Always remember where the light is coming from. 
It's actually a lot brighter than in the painting, but, if I paint that way, I'll miss the point. The priority should be on the shell. So, I keep the cloth deliberately darker than reality. 
Well, that's what Greg told me :)
Then I refined a green bottle. 

I'll finish this one next week, the last lesson of the year. 

Work in progress. 16x20 in.
