This was week two painting with oils and I am having a blast. Guennadi Kalanine is a great instructor and seems to know just what instruction/criticism I need to get to the next stage.
I continued to work on the still life that I started last week. It took me a whole class to get everything painted and then a second class to refine it. I am very pleased with it as my first painting.
I need to get more aggressive and work more quickly if I am going to take my oils outside. I suspect that "Alla prima" oil painting especially if done "en plein air" isn't for cowards.
