Oil painting lesson with Gregory Smith

The fifth session. 
Greg told me to stay away from the skull for a moment and do more work on the other two.
The big vase needed more weight and shape, so I lightened front and darkened the edges. 
I also put a handle above it. It was tricky but went well. 
Then Greg told me to paint letters on it while it’s still wet. I had thought it would be better to do it once it’s dry. That was very interesting. By painting wet on wet, paint flows naturally therefore looks more painterly. 
I had to wiped it off several times but it looks fine now. 

Then I did more work on the right one, making it look more chalky. 

I think it’s getting there. 

Work on progress. 16x20 in.
