  • Drawing and Painting Together

    This is another complicated charcoal drawing, one done by an artist completing her first level of study at Studio Incamminati. I have shown it in three stages, ranging from the beginning of the drawing process to the end. The light is from the front right, and the subjects include metal and glass objects...

  • Confessing All of Your Shady Ways

    One of my unhappiest memories of making art is drawing a really 70s-looking still life that my art teacher set up for us in the sixth grade. I remember being soooo bored and not interested at all in what we were doing until my teacher gave us a challenge to use any of the different shading techniques...

  • Do You Know All Your Lines?

    Two Women with Still Life by Willem de Kooning, pastel and charcoal on paper, 22 1/4 x 18 3/4 in., 1952. The artifice of line is one of the aspects of drawing that I am most in love with. The fact that we can take line—which doesn't exist in the natural world—and create works of art that...

  • Is That Goat Wearing a Pink Suit of Armor?

    Whether or not Thomas Woodruff's paintings are to your taste in terms of subject matter is one thing—although who doesn't love maniacal butterflies and tigers prowling through lush, jewel-tone landscapes?—but the artist definitely knows how to put a painting together compositionally...

  • Re: New to painting, critique/advice appreciated

    I have a few comments. 1) There are no rules. There are ways of gaining skills, but no rules. 2) What do you want your drawing/painting to look like? Do you have (a) favorite artist(s) whose works you particularly admire? Find someone to emulate because it gives you a first standard toward which you...

  • Re: Challenge #25 - November 2012

    Because you invited experienced artists as well as beginners I decided to participate. I drew a version of the basket photo which I post below. It reminds me of a copy in pen that I made recently of one of Van Gogh's early still lifes (which I copied from a book). As with that copy (which follows...

  • Everything is Practice for Everything Else

    I have painted many still lifes over time, and I like to approach the genre differently at different times. Because it's not always possible for me to paint at the same time each day (for uniform light), I sometimes "practice" the subject by using other media that are quicker, less complicated...

  • new still life objects

    Every so often I revisit the thrift stores in search of new still life objects, and rarely do I leave empty handed. My most recent trips were no exception. And now in turning to still life again, I have a bunch of brand new-to-me things to look at and study. I first use them to make drawings. I want...

  • "Childhood"

    When I was very young, we'd go to my grandparent's house. At the back door and to the right, was a milk delivery door. It was cast iron on the outside against the brick and inside, next to where my Granddad would sit at the kitchen table, the inner wooden door with a chrome door. They were maybe...
