My approach to my still life project

Today I’m going to experiment and treat my art the same way in which I treat my cooking and baking which I also love to do !

To see what happens. I want to create more art everyday and Work harder. I cook everyday so I thought it might be fun to use the same philosophy !

Firstly Ive chosen what I’m going to do!

I’ve cleaned up and organised my workspace

I’ve set up my still life

I came up with my idea last night of the plant pot and two apples whilst I lay in bed last night

I love my bookcase in my studio! I’ve placed the plant in front of my bookcase which in Lockdown we all seam to have behind us ! My two apples are representing my two healthy children but their fragility I am aware of and the passing of time as they ripen and decay !

I have chosen two images from artists to keep me focused. These represent a still life of flowers by Hockney and a landscape in yellow by Sutherland. Looking at these will keep me from swaying away in another direction.

I’ve then decided what I’m going to use.

Charcoal, ink, and gouache

I’ve always wanted to be an artist for some reason. What ever that means. Perhaps it means being paid to create art or creating art for yourself? I think it would make me happier to paint every day, to loose myself in the process of painting, drawing, making ! Only of course when I am enjoying it and it’s going well! 😇 I like beautiful things around me. I like colour, pattern and texture. I like history, I like to know what has happened in people’s lives, how they have coped with life and what they have done.
