Maybe if he practices enough?

Making progress but the focus has yet to be achieved. It's 24 x 36 oil on wood. There is still a lot to go. Mostly at this stage the painting is more or less in the middle of value and detail. Many darks and lights still have to be pushed and the details have a long way to go. While Working on my painting regarding reflections, I always attempt to attack the image in a direct application of the paint to create the illusion of the reflections. In a sense I am not adding paint in thin layers. The reflection is created by only value and color and not physical layering of the paint.
