The Still Life carries a long tradition with representational artists. The variety of textures and surfaces provide endless opportunities for exploration, and challenges the artist to hone her skills in drawing, composition, values, form, and edges. I painted this sunny still life of my potted basil on my back patio. I never know whether to call these kinds of paintings a still life or a plein air, because they are actually both! The challenge is to capture the accuracy required from still life painting along with the immediacy of the changing light from plein air.
