The Still Life Workshop blog is being discontinued, but I will post occasional set up photos on my BenikArts blog starting Fall of 2016.

We have spent the past year preparing to move from our Denver area home. This journey is nearly complete, and I will be setting up my new studio over the next couple of months.

Explore your world and paint what you love!

Summer Still Life

Nora MacPhail

Today's challenge still life comes from the open studio we hold every Wednesday afternoon at the Lakewood Arts Council Art Center.  Although it is fairly complex with many elements, the objects are simple-shaped with generally matte surfaces and minimal shine or gloss, and the color scheme is basically complementary blue/orange.  Pick out a couple of things for your focus area and work on those.

Summer Still Life
Again, there are no deadlines to the Still Life Workshop challenges, so work on them at your own pace.  The next still life painting challenge will be posted on Sunday August 19th (more or less).

Follow the "Send Your Pictures" rules on the right when you are ready to share your artwork, but most of all, have fun!

What a lovely setup--I love the shapes and colors. The light on the yellow cloth is really beautiful! I hope to do (at least) a painting of it.
