Still Life.

My very first canvas. I can't draw for toffee so thought it high time I took myself off to learn how to. I went to Art class last Thursday and we were given a blank canvas and a picture of an apple to copy. This is the result. Not bad. At least it does look like an apple! (I'd show you the authentic water mark on the back but the canvas is still drying out.) Next lesson is a lake against blue skye with the reflection of the water showing at the bottom of the canvas. No pressure there then!! Tate gallery here I come. I'm entering this on 1st Unique Gifts. " Handmade Monday " where you can see lots of other projects being show cased. Pop on over for a real treat. My little teacup and saucer made the top five over at Funky Hand. last week.

  1. You can't draw? You can paint!!! It's brilliant, I love the shine on it, can almost see your reflection in it it's so realistic.

  12. You can draw and paint, so long since I did my A level, oops that ages me as don't think they do these anymore, keep up the good work but warning can be addictive.

  13. Great work! And by the looks of things, you can draw so you have no issue, or shouldn't have, with the sky vs. lake piccy!

  15. That's great, I would never have known it was your first attempt if you hadn't said. I like the way it sits firmly on the shadow. Well done.
