Summer Still Life

Updated: Dec 10, 2022

Summer is the perfect time to celebrate fruit and it's role in art history. This week the lesson focused on composition.

We began by arranging pear and circle shapes and doing studies. For inspiration, we looked at a still life by Cezanne; the master of painting fruit with beautiful textures and colors. Even though the class started with the same materials it's interesting to see the individual interpretations. For this lesson the under drawing was done with markers and then painted with Kwik Stiks. Additional textures were added with oil pastels.
