It ain’t only flowers and fruits


Article Excerpt:
Still life is the study of an inanimate object…takes you right back to 6th grade art class! However, still life images are not restricted to painting and drawing – many of us take still life photos every day without actually realizing that we are taking a “still life”. When you really think about it, you may realize just how many still life’s you’ve taken over the years. In the traditional sense a still life is often thought of as a bowl of fruit, a vase of flowers, or an arrangement of related (or non-related) objects. But ultimately any type of objects that you set up or create as a scene can be a still life; they don’t necessarily need to be flowers or fruit. The key to creating a good still life is thinking about the object in terms of setting the scene.

  1. My art teacher said it wasn’t “legit” when I did a still life drawing of shoes, belt, etc. I thought at the time that he wasn’t very imaginative. 🙂 This is a lovely statue.
