Oil Painting Update

I had my 4th oil class this morning. The photo below is the still life I have been working on. It has a ways to go yet but I wanted to show you my progress. I in no way claim this to be all mine. My teacher (the Amazing Delah Mckay) has plenty of brushtime in this painting doing demos and helping me out of trouble, but I am really pleased with how much I am picking up. I probably have to more days of work on this one in class. In between classes I am going to start a few still life set ups at home and keep practicing.

Once I have a few paintings under my belt and get to a certain comfort level. I want to work on painting this mandolin of mine in a setup. I think it could be a wonderful painting.

Keep Makin' Art!

Looks like you're doing great with it, Carl.

Thanks Victoria. The goal is just learning at this point, but I am happy how this is going.

I have absolutely no feel for oils or acrylics. I'm forever trying to correct. FEH. I think the mandolin setup could be a marvelous painting.
