Still Life Phase II Preview

You are now ready to study some of the key patinas you will need to paint in your artistic career.  In this phase Jeff Watts has selected five of the patinas he has had the most calling to do in his career, as well as ones that were the most challenging.  Watch in the following video lessons as Jeff explores glass, silver, hammered copper, wood, and china.

After completing these exercises you will move onto florals. Again, the five chosen flowers each present quite a unique petal structure. You will be able to extrapolate other flowers by reflecting on these five. We will again be using the “Zorn” palette. If this is your first introduction to still life make sure you watch the “How to mix the Zorn Palette” tutorial video. Remember, all of these phases will use elements of the previous phase, so try to refrain from jumping around too much.
