Oil Painting lesson with Gregory Smith

After two week break, nice to be back in the studio. 

I started today by painting a background and a table. 
Then Greg showed me how to paint ‘sculpturally’. With thin paints and using directional brush strokes, like hatching, and creating very subtle tonal shifts, we can ‘sculpt’ shapes on a flat surface. 

Now that I had a solid 3D base, the rest just follows. Well, that’s the plan. Then I tried details on her face. 
It’s getting there. 

Work in progress. 16x20 in.
