Steps to Still Life Days 1 & 2

1. Set up the still life.

 2. Draw the still life. Probably the hardest step for me because of the perspective/proportion issues I have. I used medium vine charcoal but #4 pencil would have been a better choice as the charcoal erases too easily.

 3. Tone the canvas.  I will be working with 4 colors-- Venetian Red, Yellow Ocher, Titanium White and Ivory Black. The canvas is toned in Venetian Red.

4. Grid the drawing and canvas. Transfer the drawing to the canvas.

5.  Set the drawing with paint and remove the grid from the canvas.
