Still Life Composition The does and don’ts
I came across a “work in progress’ painting by Luis Colon I’m Still Here which I liked a great deal. The artist was not satisfied and made changes which is something I do all the time.
The reasons Luis gave for making his changes had to do with the scale of the objects and I wondered if this the reason I liked the painting so much and why I have my difficulties painting still life’s?
I try very hard to get the relationship and size of the objects correct, but then I lose interest. The scale of the objects in this painting make no sense, but there is something about the painting that I’m beginning to like.
