I am going to choose a few items for still life and paint them in different arrangement and backgrounds with the intention learning something new about my painting methods. Often, when I do the same painting a few times, it becomes looser and I notice and think about different relationships within the painting. There is the negative space, the edges, perspective, values to consider and also making a painting monochromatic vs bursting with color. Please stop back soon and see what I have been doing with still life. The paintings below are older ones to use as a comparison.
