I’ve always thought of the still life as kind of an exercise, like a musical scale. Something to do before you take on something bigger. That’s complete nonsense of course, as galleries are filled with amazing still lifes. I guess I think that because I tend to doodle them a lot. I rather like drawing bowls and glasses (and shading them too, of course). But I don’t really do them properly, like a finished product.
I have painted some proper still lifes in the past few years, so it seemed like it would be fun to do one here. And lo, a bowl of noodles. IT’s not even what we had for dinner tonight.
The table cloth has the Texture>Texturizer>Burlap effect and the wall is Texture>Mosaic Tiles.
Pass the cheese, please!
