Still Life Challenge

The Tuesday Evening Art class has undertaken a Still Life Challenge. Several of the students painted a still life in the class room, in pastel, oils and acrylic, to see the difference each medium and artist made to the final painting.

Set up...

Our tutor set up the still life (with no flowers as requested *lol*) and each student worked from a different angle.

The sketch...
 Acrylic


 Pastel


Oils

It was really interesting to see how each student worked with their chosen medium. Everyone was really focused and enjoyed the challenge, taking breaks to wander around the room to see how the other students were going, discussing techniques for each medium.

By the end of the two hour class...

Acrylics

Pastels

Oils

The students have continued to work on the paintings and the final works will be on display at the Blacktown Arts & Crafts Group Open Day on Sunday 26 September 2010.
