So last Saturday I taught a still life workshop using acrylics. Before the workshop I brushed up (pardon the pun) on how to paint a still life the way the masters always have. Very interesting researh and a great learning experience for me. So I came home and had to really put it to the test. I did several different still lifes and had a blast. I used very loose brush strokes and finished each painting within a matter of hours. Here's one of them.
