The way I work is not that different in the two mediums. I usually work light to dark, put on an under painting, work back to front in a landscape and paint a little all over the painting so as to not get bogged down in one place. In both instances, if there is a lot of light color, I usually don't put dark behind that; like the sky or a white bowl or plate.
I enjoyed the still life, Eggs 'N More, in pastel I did a couple of weeks ago, so decided to do a small still life in oil.
Oil on canvas panel, 7 x 5 inches

It is fun to paint glass. I search for the shapes in dark and light and try not to think "bottle" or the item and am pleased when I step back and it looks like the item I was working on. The color in this is pretty close, at least on my monitor. The table cloth is a brighter white, though. Both the bottle and the little ceramic chicken are from Chile. We used to eat at restaurants in Parque O'Higgins in Santiago and Gene would buy me one of the little blue and white animals. I have a good sized collection of birds, frogs, llamas, giraffes, etc. I also have some cups in that pottery with wooden saucers. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Chile.
