Someone has asked for some advice on how to tackle a still life assignment. Since this is my first ever attempt at telling, and showing, someone how to do anything even vaguely artistic, I hope you’ll have patience with me. Be aware that I have no training whatsoever in imparting knowledge; and if you are being tutored elsewhere, please remember that satisfaction shall be rendered unto that tutor before me. After all, they have Qualifications.
I could start with a detailed description of my converted single garage, complete with a layout plan and photos of every nook and cranny; but you’d probably be asleep before too long (which may be a good thing – you spend too much time on the internet anyway). So I’ll just stick to a paragraph here and a photo there, as it occurs to me.
For starters, meet my drawing sticks.
