Painting and drawing inspirational objects is the key to a good still life piece. Here student Pam Cherry has certainly been thinking very creatively as her two mackerel on brown paper are the perfect still life subjects! She has been thinking outside of the box here and its worked out beautifully. Loving the limited pallet of greys, blues and browns. Pam also set about designing a still life study of a wooden trugg and plant pots from her garden. The photo below shows some of Pam’s sketches in both graphite and paint, along with the finished painting below them.
