Painting the still life
Color III: Materials & Light
After the spheres and tomatoes, we found ourselves whit our next challenge: The still-life. As I've mentioned before, a still-life is often aside or down as an uncreative/boring subject.
However, it's the best way to study our art principles

Color II: fragmenting color theory
In our path to discovery and understanding color, we come across the next step in the grand scale of color because, after the matte sphere, the red tomato comes next.

Color I: Values & introduction to color
When it comes to complex subjects, there is nothing like simple examples to tackle them. We had "the white jug" in previous lessons. In this three-part lesson, we'll use the most basic shape there is a simple grey sphere.

Lesson I: Still life & Value studies
The bowl of fruit, the white jug, the delightful flower vase, Still life seems to be a common theme for art students in any appearance it takes. As simple as it might seem, the still-life study can help whit developing our artistic abilities further.
In today's lesson, we'll cover the art of Still-life in co-relation whit light, tone value, and simple composition.
Masters of painting: Ilya Repin
Ivan the terrible Kills his son Ivan and composition.
By Realist Ilya Repin between 1833 - 1885. "Ivan the terrible kills his son" or "Ivan and his son Ivan" depicts the brutal act of Tsar Ivan after killing his son. Repin´s style manages to convey a sense of harmony, a rare sense of sweetness, and remorse of the act.
In this scene, Repin manages to capture the underlying story, horror, and prospect of fear (both, for the loss of his son and his empire) he approached the creation of this piece as a rejection of violent acts and bloodshed inspired by the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881. By capturing the moment after the fatal blow, he managed to capture a crucial moment in the history of Russia.
