Check Out This Excerpt From Painting Light with Colored Pencil:

Setting up a still life is one of the fun aspects of painting. Combine interesting objects into something you would like to share with others. Look for ways to make even the most ordinary objects exciting. In regards to my paintings, a viewer once said to me, “Who knew that three pears could be so interesting!” That’s one of my all-time favorite compliments.

If you paint subjects that you love, your enthusiasm will transfer to your art. The color of a piece of fruit, the texture of a basket or the shape of a tea kettle can be the inspiration for a still life.

Have a camera on hand as you look for inspiration for your work. Keep in mind some of the components that make up a successful painting:

  • Texture
  • Color
  • Shape
  • Repeition
  • Light
  • Reflections
  • Shadows
Looking for the components in your subjects before you begin to paint will help you to arrange a pleasing composition.
