Still Life

A few samples of my still life paintings

The two paintings below are examples of my initial washes and paint drips on white paper being used to create texture in the vases

Tonight when I teach, I will be painting a still life and my focus continues to be on how to build layers of washes to create a greater sense of depth. This is one of few lessons I teach where using a pencil first will come in handy, even though it's just to loosely mark a few general shapes in the composition.

I decided to post a few of my past still life paintings, all florals, just to get myself into the zone for tonight's lesson. I hope to have my work in progress to share in my blog tomorrow.
