First ever oil painting [WIP]

So through my school I got the chance to join an oil painting workshop. We'll be continuing next week, but this is what I got so far;

Thanks! A lot, though it feels closer to digital than acrylics, due to the fact that the typical rush to finish a part before its dry that I often have with acrylics wasn't present here. Like with digital art, I could take a lot more time and correcting something was a lot easier.
It did take a bit of getting used to, but once I got the hang of it, it was loads of fun.

It is painted freely, which is good, because it is all about awakening the painterly feeling. However, I have noted a tendency, among many amateurs, that the difference in values is not sufficiently accentuated. Better contrasts do much to emphasize form. Perhaps it's a good idea to make only monochrome paintings for a while, so that one gets a better feeling for values. Picasso started out doing only blue paintings. Then he had a period during which he only painted in pinks. Professional painters often squint. It makes it easier to perceive values.

To be fair, the lack of contrast in this case had more to do with me getting to know the medium. I usually start my digital work in grayscale for exactly the reason you mention; making sure there's balance. With this paint, however, I'm really still learning how to mix and work with the layers, which I think is the real reason the values are rather meh on this one.
Still appreciate the feedback though.
