A small still life painting can be created, from start to finish, in just a few hours and give you a satisfying sense of accomplishment.
Painting a small still life is also a great opportunity to practice techniques, color mixing, refine your brushwork, develop a good mastery of the media. Unlike when painting in a large size, using a canvas of a square foot or less permits you to focus on a detail and finish it, making it easier to understand the various stages of development of a painting, mastering the technique and making it much easier to tackle larger works later on.
Small paintings are also a great way to study a subject before starting a large work, resolving compositional issues, what color palette to use, the tonal aspects of the subjects and so on.
But a small still life, can also be just that: a satisfying little painting to hang on the wall and enjoy looking at, along with the other paintings we will create during the 6 sessions of his online course. The lessons will be recorded and you will receive a link to the recording to watch the painting session again at your leisure and as many times as you want, for one year. This way you can decide if paint along with me during the session, or just enjoy the demonstration first, and watch it again later at your convenience when you decide to paint.
