Paintbox 3 - A bowl of flowers - How to paint a still life in oil

Details: In this 60 minute video Noel Garner from Cambridge Art Academy shows you how to create a convincing still life using oil paint. This new and original video demonstrates how to set up your subject, what materials and techniques are needed and then, step-by-step, paints the complete picture of thistles in flower. Click on the title above to find out more.

  • Would you like to paint a still life that really looks alive?
  • Do you wish you could capture the freshness of a bowl of flowers without having to paint every last detail?
  • Would you like to do it in hours, not days?
If the answer to these questions is “yes please”, then this 60 minute video tutorial and demonstration is just what you need.

And the reason?
  • Noel Garner’s easy to follow, inspiring approach, gives you a unique roadmap to effective still-life painting.
  • It's a product that you won't find anywhere else - whether in a book or on a DVD.
Just look at  what you get:
  • Step-by-step video footage of the live demonstration from start to finish. What you see is the actual painting shown here - not one that is similar or pieced together later on.
  • Twin panel view  - one showing the painting in progress, the other showing the paint mixing palette, so you can see the artist mixing paint and then applied to the canvas.
  • Inclusion of a downloadable and printable high definition photograph of the same subject that Noel is painting - lit in the same way, and from the same angle - so you can have a copy beside you as the video unfolds.
  • Additional, high definition, downloadable and printable images of very different still life subjects are included too  - all set up and properly lit so you can paint your own picture from them if you wish. The three set pieces are: vegetables, handyman's tools, and raw meat on a plate!
This video also clearly demonstrates:
  • Clear advice on what colours to use.
  • How to mix paints to get the right colors.
  • How to include just the right amount of detail, and no more.
  • How to combine colours in a harmonious way.
  • How to use different types of brush strokes for different parts of the painting process.
  • Talks you through how to select a suitable subject for a still-life painting, how to arrange it and how to light it properly for painting.
