Still Life & Composition


I’m starting to get a much better understanding of value, colour and composition. The use of limited palettes has helped to better understand individual colours and using compositional, value and colour sketches is making me feel more confident about composition. I’m finding painting now is less hit and miss and more consistent. I used to do some really good paintings but also many that didn’t work out. Now, with the planning I’m putting into my work fewer and fewer are throw aways. This assignment was to practice composition using a still life. I used Yellow Ochre, Cad Yellow Medium, Cad Red Light and Cerulean Blue. I like the low perspective.
