Still Life Sketches

Still Life Sketches, each 6 x 6
I teach painting at the Austin Museum of Art and my still life class started this past Wednesday. One of my favorite things about it is collecting paintable objects and creating fun vignettes for my students to paint... And of course I always want to paint them myself! So this week, I came home and did these quick sketches.

You inspire me to try quick sketches, I know it's important.

I agree, these still life sketches are beautiful. I like the loose strokes and the vibrant colors! Enjoy teaching your class, your students are very lucky!

I'd love to learn to be
so right on in a quick
painting. It takes me
some time. Your sketches are
just fantastic.

Thank you all so much! Small and quick sketches are a really good way to loosen up, practice and experiment. And it's fun too!
