Still Life – Painting Metal
Still life painting is one of the foundations of every good artist. Learning form and value is crucial for any artist, and it all starts with a metal pot. Painting a metal pot or an apple may not seem like fun and games, but it is a necessary step in learning how to understand form, value, and lighting which can then be used when painting objects from your imagination. Daarken will take you through the process of painting a metal pot from photo reference by showing you how to create a line drawing and then how to add value to your painting.
