I had a really useful discussion at a recent tutorial that got me thinking about the difference between painting a still life and painting an object. In my mind, they had always been one and the same but, now that I realise that they are not, a whole world of possibilities has opened up for me.
I’ve been using props in my work for a while now but some objects I am drawn to just because they are just so…. they are just so.
