patdzon's oil studies
Here they are, my very first venture into oil painting. Both are monochome studies of pears. I feel that I should first focus on the value aspect for the meantime so I can be familiar with it before going into the colors itself.
It was pretty uncomfortable at first but, by the 2nd study, I got more familiar with the process and materials. I'll make my later efforts much better.
1st oil study
2nd oil study
These photos are the best I could manage. Pretty similar to the originals, just not that clear.
I'm looking forward for crits and tips!

For first attempts you're doing quite well, you got your values right. First one I like, second one I don't know about the shadows.

first one is great! no complaints about the composition or the values. you definately payed attention to the shadow shapes. great.
the second one doesnt appear to be observed well enough in terms of textures. if you look at the painting from the side however, the subject appears to be the little hammer thing you use to play the glockenspiel. its in perspective so you have to find it. anyway. good stuff.

velaturas are semi opaque layers of paint, and glazes are thin layers of paint..this is done after you have a finished grisaille underpainting..the classical way to paint..as oposed to direct painting...i dont know the method obviuously but this is the way i will be taught is facinating.. i just wanted to try it by myself hehe... see how it goes..
