Have you ever picked up a brush and found yourself paralyzed with the fear of not knowing what to do? In this article, we will examine some useful tips that will help you create great still life painting.

How To Know If You Will Be Able To Paint A Striking Still Life

One of the biggest doubts for anyone who is about to start painting is whether he will be able to paint a striking still life or not. When I was a beginner, this doubt was one of my biggest problems. I thought that everyone had it easier than me because they were born with the talent to paint while I had to learn it.

Thing is, it’s really not true! Everyone has their own way of learning and if you’re willing to accept that fact, you can get on your way to becoming a good painter in no time at all.

Everyone starts out as a beginner. There are NO exceptions! We all have our doubts when we start out and no one can get rid of them for you. But the only way out of your doubts is by doing something about them. The only way out is through!

If you want to know how to create great still life paintings, just follow these simple steps:

Virtually anything can be a subject for a painting. That is one of the joys of painting for the artist. No matter where you live, there’s a world of images right in front of you.

But what if you are just starting out? What if you’re not even sure you want to paint as a hobby? Well, this post will help. It is about turning some ordinary objects into something special just by changing the way they look in a painting.


The techniques used here aren’t necessary. You could just as well photograph these still life and paint them from your photos. But it’s more fun to try different things, and learn something in the process.

The idea is to make an ordinary object look special by enhancing its appearance with light, color and texture. This will give you some practice using light, and also provide you with some new things to paint that won’t require all the skills needed for a portrait or landscape but will give you something to do while waiting for that perfect light on that beautiful scene outside your window (or inside your house if it’s raining).

Being a good artist means being able to see things differently. The artist can see the beauty in something that others might not notice. When you look at a still life, you will see how the artist has used various techniques to create an atmosphere, which makes the painting look realistic and appealing. If you wish to be able to create a striking still life, follow these tips from experts.

I’ve been a professional artist for over 25 years, and I’ve painted a LOT of still lifes. Though there are thousands of great still life tutorials out there on the internet, I rarely see anything about how to make them actually STILL. So today I’m going to show you how to do that.

When you look at a painting, the first thing you notice is the colors, right? Even if you’re not a painter, it grabs your attention. But what if your colors aren’t interesting? What if they don’t grab your attention? Then the painting may be technically good (or bad), but it will be boring and nobody will want to look at it. You can have all the technique in the world, but if you don’t have interesting colors, people won’t buy your work or even look at it. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a portrait, landscape or still life—if your colors aren’t interesting, no one will like it!

Still Life Painting Basics: A Quick Overview

This post is part of my series on Still Life Painting Basics: How To Do It Right The First Time. If you haven’t

The above is a link to an article on art, written by an expert. It was published in an online magazine, and it is written in a professional tone.

The first paragraph of the article is as follows:

“Ah, still life paintings. The most basic of painting genres; the one that every artist must master. It’s the absolute building block of any art education or art career. You simply can’t move on to other genres like portraits, landscapes or abstracts unless you can do a strong still life.”

What does the author mean? What does he think are the benefits of doing a “strong still life”? Why should one try to make their work better?

The author says that if you want to be able to paint anything else well, then you must start with learning how to paint a Still Life well. So let’s talk about that.

A painting of a Still Life is a painting which has three different objects in it. These objects are usually things such as fruits, flowers, and/or vegetables. They could also be man-made objects like books and vases. A painting of this type is often made to look realistic so that it appears as though the objects exist naturally in front of the viewer and not on a canvas.

First, you will want to gather up your subjects. You can choose any objects you like, but I find that the more unusual and interesting your objects are, the better your composition will be. For this still life, I chose the following: an old wooden chair with its base painted a lime green color, a sheet of mirror tiles glued to a piece of foam board for a table top, a glass goblet filled with water, and a small vase full of fake flowers.

TIP: If you’re not sure what kind of objects to use for still life painting, try looking outside your window! There are some very unique items that people have in their homes that would make good subjects for paintings!

In this blog, I am going to try to show you that one of the most important things in painting is what is not there. The artist needs to learn how to paint the illusion of light, color and shape on a flat surface. This is a very hard thing to do and takes many years of practice.
