As part of this workshop, students will be working from printed photos or other digital devices (not provided by the school) to paint from combining both working from life and from photos. There is little in the painting other than the strawberries and their leaves.

It doesn’t necessarily need to be about painting it could also be about marketing your art like you want to build a blog or you want to start selling on E-bay or you would want to submit to magazines or submit to galleries. With these simple forms and the monumentality of the pitcher in the middle (a frequently recurring object in his paintings), Picasso was fully in line with the return to classicism then in vogue.

Set up the still life so that you can move around it and will be able to paint from different locations without rearranging the objects in the composition. The hole in the fan base where the tassel cord passes through looks like an eye for example, staring out from a head supported by the long "neck" of the fan. Still life’s reputation has long been sullied by heavy-handed, novice renditions of lopsided bananas and static flower bouquets.

The many kinds of cloth, string and tassel on the fan produces a great many different surface textures in a very small space at the bottom of the picture. Cynthia will demonstrate drawing the structure of the face with oil, then applying color. Look at the close-up details of the pear and the tea-cup and you will see the use of unexpected dashes of colour side by side, to give vibrancy to the image.

The transfer is done by tracing the drawing onto tracing paper, covering the back of the tracing paper with raw umber oil paint, placing the tracing paper face-up on the painting surface and going over the lines with a ball point pen to make an impression through to the painted side of the paper.
The medium’s long and illustrious history reached its morbid zenith in 16th and 17th century Belgium and Holland, where the interplay between light and dark washed over solemn still lifes of skulls, wilting flowers and decaying fruit. (A little insight into the symbolism behind these objects: “Skulls functioned as a reminder of the certainty of death; rotten fruit symbolizes decay like aging; bubbles, smoke, watches, hourglasses and musical instruments symbolize the brevity of life.”) The grim Vanitas style of painting translates to “emptiness” in Latin and was intended to evoke the “meaninglessness of earthly life and the transient nature of vanity.” Needless to say, these compositions are thoughtful, if not the most optimistic.
