Artist’s Notes on Still life Painting

Learn to Paint Still lives

Learning to paint still lives in a classical style requires one to practice observing the world in a completely new way. You have to become a child once again. Instead of looking at apples as just round forms strewn on a tabletop, one must learn how to see them in terms of both color and value within the space that they rest.  This empty space that surrounds the apples, believe it or not, has a unique color and value, too, and must be observed as carefully as the fruit itself.

Learning how to paint well and the process of becoming an artist are completely different. Good paintings are about mastery of craft; whereas a fine artist has to achieve a balance between mastery of craft and the idea behind the painting: its content!  Don’t bother trying to be an artist in the beginning; first learn the fundamentals of painting before setting out to consciously make paintings about grand ideas. The simplest subjects often make the most profound statements. It is better to make a small painting about a big idea, rather than a monumental painting that expresses nothing.  If you study nature daily through your paintings, there will be great truth in your work. What you see in the world provides the answers. If you study painting daily over time you will learn to paint still lives.
