I felt like doing a still life yesterday, and a smaller work at that. I’ve been working half sheet paintings lately. I enjoyed the challenge of working on a large surface. Yesterday, I went back to my watercolor roots and did a miniature, 6″ x 4″.
Still lifes are such fun paintings. You lay down your entire setting. Then you add the little elements like shadows and surface texture and the painting comes to life. The elements look real, three-dimensional. The transformation can be quite dramatic.Well, here’s my latest. Hope you like it.
