Still Life

The Form V Q set has started the year by looking at still life compositions. A still life is a composition of inanimate subjects typically comprising various commonplace objects. The Q set looked at some of the still lifes painted by the Dutch Masters, C√©zanne and of course Salvador Dali's 'Living Still Life'. However it is the more modern still life images which caught the pupils' attention and has provided the inspiration for the work which they began in class today.

 Posted below are paintings by the American artist Dennis Wojtkiewicz, The light and translucence along with amazing attention to detail make these oil paintings truly remarkable.
