Oil painting lesson with Gregory Smith

Well, the painting started to look too orange, a bad habit. 
Greg told me that too much Naples Yellow Deep. I should be braver when it comes to the mixture of Light Red. 
Here comes Cad Red. The trick is, use it towards the end, and very sparingly. It would bring a very subtle pinky tone to cheek for example. That was a big discovery.  It immediately brings a life to a portrait. 
I spent the rest of the session fine tuning the details. 

Joshua was a great model, very patient. He’s very interested in the process. Actually he’ll start with us from next week!

There’re still many things I’m not happy, but I’ve learned a lot.
