Composing with Purpose: Still Life with Pastels

Composing with Purpose: Still Life with Pastels. Photo by Enid Braun.

What makes a still life painting compelling or emotionally moving? Underlying abstract or formal issues such as color, skill, or inherent beauty of its subjects, a good still life depends on a clear intent by the artist. This class will explore various ideas to identify specific goals for a painting, beginning with quick initial compositional sketches. Some experience is recommended.
