Every aspiring artist must learn the art of drawing or painting a still life, and there is beauty in it. I started making art through still life and nature, and that allowed me to really appreciate the wonder in a still life. A still life is a compilation of hand strokes put onto a blank medium to create something "real".
Through still live's, I learned how to create atmosphere, tone, mood, stories and themes. Every one can make the same still life, but how you make yours is what gives that still life its personality.
With every still life I made, I put a little bit of my own style and mood into it. Whether its through the choice of color or the shape of a certain element, my still lifes are still a representtaion of me.
