Still life with alive plants and bird

Still life with alive plants and bird - student project

I composed a still life and drew from it as shown. Finding the relationships of the shapes and observing this while recreating a two-dimensional representation accurately was a technical challenge. I brought my line drawing into Procreate. I observed the work of Charley Harper. I love his use of bright flat color with minimum expressive line work on top. His work is simple yet tells a story. I worked my shapes then a story took place. The shapes were done then I threw on the line work for the flowers and bird.

The tall bottle looked lonely so I made a vine cascade down to greet the bird.

I am very please with how this piece came out as I had no idea what would happen. Thank you Nina I enjoy your teaching content and your delivery.

I am very encouraged by your class.

Best,
