Day 3: Painting like Peploe

AEDMart 4

Still Life #1, 31x23cm, acrylic on cardboard. Available on Etsy.

I just started a short course at Edinburgh College of Art called Scottish Colourists Revisited, where each week we’ll be tackling a subject matter beloved by the Colourists. I love taking art classes – it gets me out of the house/studio, allows me to meet new people, and nudges me to make art I wouldn’t have otherwise made. As evidence I submit these two paintings from our first day of class. I can’t remember the last time I set up a (non-food) still life in my studio, but I really enjoyed the experience of arranging and painting these pieces with traditional still life subject groupings.

Next week we’ll be sketching interiors. I’m looking forward to it.

It’s Art Every Day Month! Towards the end of the month, these new daily paintings will be available to purchase in my Etsy shop. Check out Leah’s blog for more information about Art Every Day Month, or follow the discussion on Twitter with the #aedm2014 hashtag.

    All those colors just pop! It’s nice to get out of the studio & mingle every once in a while. It keeps our creativity fresh & flowing. Popping over from AEDM!
