Still Life Drawing is a creative workbook to inspire the act of drawing the objects that surround us. Following in the footsteps of many centuries of famous artists for whom still life drawing was a pivotal practice, this book invites you to slow down and pay attention to the often-overlooked details of your life, celebrating a whole world of colours, patterns and textures. Don't be put off if you think you can't draw - Oehr asserts that there are no rules, and the accessibility of drawing the objects we naturally encounter is a great way to find meaning and creativity in our everyday lives. Featured in the book are quick, achievable and fun exercises to learning sketching techniques; experiment with pattern and colour; create texure with different mediums; and take the time to build creativity into your routine.
