TECHNIQUE: Once you are happy with the shape, proportion and composition of the still life, you can erase its lines of construction. This will leave you with an accurate outline of each form and the confidence that all the objects are positioned correctly. You are now ready to work on the details of each object.

NOTE: This see-through drawing technique uses vertical and horizontal lines of construction to help you to draw convincing ellipses and to balance the symmetry of cylindrical forms.

THE FINISHED STILL LIFE: The completed still life should work on two levels: as a realistic representation of the group of objects and as a dynamic composition of visual elements, harmonizing and contrasting the use of line, shape and tone.

TECHNIQUE: The second stage in building up the tone focuses on the spaces between and around the objects.

Steps 1 to 4: These steps demonstrate how to draw the shapes and proportions of the still life objects using line.

NOTE: You need to be careful in balancing the tonal values of the objects and the spaces between them to ensure that you create a unified image.

TECHNIQUE: Finally, you focus again on the spaces between the objects, deepening their tones and increasing their contrast.

Steps 5 to 8: These steps illustrate how to render the three dimensional form of the still life using tone.

Still Life is the best subject in art for learning and teaching the skills of drawing and painting. It teaches you how to look at objects and see them like an artist – with a perceptive awareness of their outline, shape, proportions, tone, color, texture, form and composition.

Our step by step still life lesson will teach you the drawing techniques used to create the still life above which was done with a 2B pencil on cartridge paper.

TECHNIQUE: Now lightly sketch in the shapes of any shadows or reflections onto each object.

TECHNIQUE: When composing a still life, try to introduce the qualities that make an interesting arrangement. You need to be aware of the abstract structure of your arrangement: its balances and contrasts of line, shape, tone, color, pattern, texture and form.

TECHNIQUE: In any still life, you should start to draw the objects as if they are transparent wire frame forms with visible lines of construction. This technique helps you to be fully aware of the shape of each individual form and its position in relation to the other forms. It is important to sketch the objects lightly as this makes it easier to change any mistakes and erase any lines of construction.

In this step, some basic tones are lightly applied to each object to help build up its three dimensional form.

NOTE: The more care you take over the accuracy of these marks, the easier you will find the next stage of the drawing – the shading of tones.

NOTE: The drawing of the light and shade between the objects must be treated with as much importance as the drawing of the objects themselves. The shadows cast beneath and around the objects add as much to the definition of their shapes as does the shading of their surfaces. Notice how the counter-change of tones between the objects and their surrounding spaces takes over from the use of line to define their forms.

NOTE: A transparent wire frame approach to sketching the still life helps you to organize the composition of the group. It makes it easier to see the shape, position and proportions of each object in relation to its neighbours.

NOTE: The biggest problem at this stage is maintaining a balance of tones across the whole still life so that no object appears too dark or too light. You are searching for a unity of tone and form.

TECHNIQUE: The tone of our still life is built up in four stages outlined in Steps 5 – 8.

TECHNIQUE: In the third stage of building up the tone, you focus back on the objects. This time you deepen their tone, increasing the contrast between the areas of dark and light. This will enhance the form of the objects and increase their impact.
