Still Life: 3 Red Pears

Three Red Pears

A still life.


Wednesday Art Classes at the Renaissance Art Gallery are starting a new still life. We have done still life drawings before, but we have worked from still life settings that I assembled.

This one is different. 

This one the students have assembled. 

They all must contribute to the set-up and concept.

3 Red Pears in a white bowl.

First we had 3 red pears.


Very nice pears.


And a white bowl.


Not bad.


Sitting on the table it was fine, but could we do more? Change the way we look at the setup?

How about looking at the lighting?

Lighting is an important part of any work of art. Where is the light coming from? How strong is it? How does it effect the shadows and shading?
Working with different light and light sources we could see just how much different lighting effected now only shadows, shading but color itself! Opening the blinds and setting the bowl where the natural light from the window could fall on it, totally changed the entire look of the still life.
