Art we sketch until our hands falls off. Sill life sketching was always easy for me, but next we have to paint a still life composition based on a chosen artist and his technique.
I had a lot of choices from Van Gogh to Picasso, but I have chosen a very special artist who’s work always had grabbed my attention with his works.
Juan Gris, born in Spain and studied mechanical painting in Madrid and moved to Paris. After Paris he med a lot of great artist who later became his friends. These artist were: George Braque, Matisse and Picasso.
Him and those artist came up with a technique called cubism, which I will have to apply to my still life painting. Picasso went strait to analytical cubism while Gris went to synthetic cubism which is more colorful and noticable. It create a floating effect on the foreground of the painting.
