Still Life Drawing or Painting
Still life art is something I usually overlook because when I think of still life artworks, I think of flowers in vases or classical paintings of tables of food…. yawn. I mean don’t get me wrong, there are some amazing still life artists out there and a lot can be learned from creating one. So this assignment is about finding something in your house that is interesting. It can be a flower arrangement in a nice vase or it can be of a loaf of bread with Woody and Buzz Lightyear riding it. It can be a your favorite glass filled with orange juice or random cat toys.
So let your imagination go into the realm of weird and set up a still life. Take a photo if you need to, but work from life and put about 45 minutes into drawing it and or painting it as well as you can.
