My latest, but not my last, still life from Angel Academy! :)
Oil on canvas, about 50x55 cm.

Like in the previous still life, I used the sight-size method here to get the proportions, relations and sizes of the objects drawn correctly in the earliest stage.
After this drawing stage, dark shapes are blocked in. Only then are colors blocked in - very simple, flat colors at first. Then each object is refined and detailed and brought to a finish.

No perishables this time, so I had no worries about anything rotting or spoiling! :lol: (Those flowers are fake)

And yes, the skull is fake too (made of plaster)

Thanks for looking

The details in this piece are astounding! I am agog at the lace pattern on the cloth. You've rendered the glassware very well, and I really enjoy the shadow cast by the wine glass. The burst of pink from the flowers was an excellent choice and is so beautiful in contrast to the many different variations on white used throughout. I love the color choices! The inclusion of the skull is an excellent thought and very interesting next to the very living flowers.
