Watch the following conversation with artist Angus Wilson about still life painting:
and the short video of his still life paintings:
In your comments, include the following:
1. 3 points about still life painting that you find of interest
2. 3 techniques from his work that you will try in your still life painting (color, composition, or style)
3. describe in detail the painting you like the best and explain why you like it more than the others.
The next two paintings you will work on in class will be still lifes. One will be more realistic (based on your drawing from the fall semester.) One will be more exaggerated and sylized as Angus’ work but also based on observation from life.
SO, this week your hour sketchbook drawing is preparation for that painting.
In your sketchbook, do an hour drawing from objects that you select and set up, in the style of Angus Wilson. You may use color or just take notes on the color scheme you intend to use.
