Studio Still Life Preview

This video showcases a longer-format still life painting. We will cover the tools necessary to embark on a more complicated scene. A cohesive theme can be formed with a basic arsenal of elements such as flowers, metals and glass. Other topics are discussed ranging from the supply of a still life “larder”  to color comps.  This video is a fifteen part  exploration of a garden theme with roses, bird nests, and antique metal objects.
