After completing the composition of the still life, do not rush to a detailed drawing
There are several classic styles of composing, no matter we talk about drawing or painting. One of the most commonly known styles is called “Still Life”. This means the composing of one or more objects which are standing still. Most generally this is about a bowl of fruits or flowers in a vase with a curtain behind it. Once you start drawing you will realize that you will need to draw tons of still life compositions because they are some of the best ways for beginners to exercise the light and the shadow effects on objects.
The next step is to draw living people and this will require tons of efforts from you for which it’s essential that you know all the basics of still life compositions. Be patient with yourself at this stage. Many battle with the huge differences between still life and living subject compositions. Don’t give up and keep on asking your teacher to help you how to make it better step by step.
