3. Still Life
There are many varied textures in the things we include in our still life paintings, and many of these textures can also be used in landscapes, buildings and so on. Here are just a few.
Shiny and dull
The difference between a shiny surface and a dull surface is easy to create when we learn how to use edges and value contrasts correctly. Here I'll show you how to do this as we paint a still life together.
Copper and brass
Use the techniques you learned to paint shiny and dull surfaces as we paint a copper kettle and a brass bucket. See how easy it is to create the texture and material of these two metal surfaces.
Glass may seem tricky to paint, but it’s actually quite straightforward. The key is to paint exactly what you see. In this exercise I will show you how to paint a glass step-by-step.
Rusty objects are fun to paint, and here I'll show you two ways to get the look of rust on some old tools from the shed.
