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
