Still Life No 1
In my last post, I challenged anyone who so wished to join me in doing a series of still lifes – each with only two objects. I’m really excited that there was such a good response.
Here’s my first in this series. I hadn’t worked with pastels in a long time, so it was good to get back into that medium, which I love. Difficult though. I’m not sure if I’ll do the rest in pastel or some other medium. It’s also surprisingly hard (I find) to set up an interesting still life with only two objects. The rules of the project say that I can only change one of those objects for the next one. I think I’ll lose the book.
Here it is. Looks, easy, huh? Not for me though……
Also, if you’re interested in still life, check out this collective blog, where a group of artists did a still lif every day for the duration of the Giorgio Morandi exhibit at the Met.
I’ll add this to the Wet Canvas site as soon a I figure out how to reduce its dimensions.
Update – I managed to upload a jpeg – I think it’s too small this time, but at least it’s there.
