Still Life: Fan


Art schools and artists are notorious for still-life paintings. One of my more successful still-lifes is one from my Intro Painting class. My collection of still-life work is not exceedingly plentiful, but I did enjoy working on this one. Done in oils on a panel board, I learned how differently oils moved across the hard surface of the panel, instead of the responsive gessoed surface of canvas. This panel is obviously not without some room-for-improvement, but considering my experience at the time, I’m still pleased with it.
