Oil painting lesson with Gregory Smith

I started today by investigating more about bread. Because I can’t place them the same way every week, I need to improvise a bit. Having said that, Greg told me that they all looked the same. So, I tried to give them some variations. 

Then, I worked on a small pot on the right. Its shape was ok but it was too cold, so I warmed it up with Burnt Sienna.  

I spent the rest of session forcing on a woodblock at back. First, I tried to get overall tones right. There are lots of cracks and I just didn’t know how to do it. Greg did some demos for me. Just like painting rocks, the trick is, darks first, then trim them from outside, rather than drawing them individually. VoilĂ . 

I’m planning to finish it next week. 

Work in progress. 16x20 in.
