Still Life 101

This class is about learning to see things simply and translating that into a painting.  We will do that by observing a single natural element - a flower, a vegetable, a piece of fruit - and distilling it, seeing its irregularities.  We’ll start by drawing the item, sketching its shape/s, creating an interesting composition.  That’s the first step in making something you will be pleased with.  Once you get the hang of that, we’ll move on to doing a one color study. The last step will be painting with colors.  This class is about taking your time to figure out what you are doing by really looking at what is in front of you.

Every week each student will bring in a still life natural object to work with.  It can be a single flower, a vegetable, a piece of fruit.   

If you have not taken this course before, please contact Liz in advance to discuss materials and class.
