all of it
He's the best teacher/mentor I ever had, and I don't think I could ever work and learn from anyone better. He's taught me everything I know about oil painting, drawing, photography, engraving -- literally EVERYTHING. He's so inspiring and attentive; he knows how to create almost anything (very well-rounded instructor). I've known Mr. Ouporov for years, he taught me so much about art and gave me the ambition to pursue it as a career. I used to draw little cartoons and disproportionate anime drawings in my sketchbook, and now I'm doing 6ft tall classical oil paintings. There's always a mutual sense of intellectual/artistic engagement, where you always feel like you're being supported, not judged. He's very professional and always enthusiastic to work with students.
He examines my work and gives a critical review and explains where I need improvement by showing me on a separate paper exactly where I need to rework a section and how to do it. And he does it seconds , whereas I labored first hours over it.
