Still Life Art Tips

Still life artist, Lisa Dinhofer believes drawing daily keeps her skills sharp and provides opportunity to explore new ideas. She never starts a still life painting without first making drawings.Combine inanimate objects with animate objects on the same scale. Dinhofer chooses objects for her still lifes—marbles, toys, masks, insects—because they have universal appeal and people relate instantly to them. Dinhofer explains that for her still life art with multiple objects, she simply puts the items together and adjusts them to see if a story emerges, even if she's not sure what the story is.

"Many of the drawings may never become paintings, but I draw because I love it. If the paintings are novels, the drawings are essays, poems—sometimes they're just thoughts." —Lisa Dinhofer
