Our still-life lesson illustrates a step by step method of how to create a still life artwork with pencil on paper.
Still Life is the best subject in art for learning and teaching the skills of drawing and painting. It teaches you how to look at objects and see them like an artist - with a perceptive awareness of their outline, shape, proportions, tone, color, texture, form and composition.
Our step by step still life lesson will teach you the drawing techniques used to create the still life above which was done with a 2B pencil on cartridge paper. You can see an animated version of this lesson in our Still Life Pencil Slideshow.
