Intermediate Watercolor 1/15/14 Interpreting a still life

Wonderful work in class today!
It should be pretty easy to set up a still life in your painting space, using familiar objects from around the house. In fact, there are probably several tableaux already in place that would make good subjects. It can be complex and dramatic...

Jan Rippingham

or very simple...

Gerhard Richter

There are no specific guidelines for this, just whatever makes you want to paint.

Please try painting your still life several times. Let's test the theory that when you paint something over and over it gets refined down to its essence.

Have fun.
