    • Still Life An exercise in composition
    • What is a Still Life?
      • It is a collection of inanimate objects used by artist’s either as a tool to study the elements and principals of art or as the subject of a piece of fine art.
    • How to Proceed
      • Start with line.
        • It is the skeleton of your work.
          • Stay loose and light.
        • Plan your composition at this point.
          • Don’t be afraid to rearrange things.
          • This is the time to think things out.
    • Tips
      • Visually divide you paper into 1/3rds vertically and horizontally.
        • Try to place things on these lines and try to place objects of interest on the intersection points.
        • Don’t hit the bulls eye!
          • Stay away from the perfect center of the composition.
        • Use a view finder.
    • How Do I Make Sense of It All?
      • Sighting.
        • Angles.
        • Relative proportion.
        • Negative space.
      • While holding you pencil extend your arm.
      • Close one eye.
      • Slide your thumb up or down the pencil to compare relative sizes of objects or to sight angles.
    • Tips 2
      • Avoid detail until you are happy with the general composition.
        • General to specific.
          • You don’t hang up the curtains before the foundation is poured.
