controlling the light, students will learn to apply (behind the scenes)
practical working elements that insure good strong paintings such as:
1.) How to build a still life stage.
2.) How to choose objects that compliment one
another and create an interesting composition.
3.) How lighting and backdrops affect the mood of the still life.

Simple Secrets Behind Creating a Beautiful Still Life
The Floyd Artist Association is happy to announce a Demonstration by Artist,
Lois Virginia Babb on Sundy, July 15th, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.
Lois Virginia is going to take you through the process of creating a good strong
still life from A to Z. She will begin with her point of inspiration which will
possibly be beautiful fresh flowers. They will be her star performer in the painting.
From this choice she will then create the "stage" guiding you through how she
chooses supporting objects for the painting and giving your practical tips on how to
build still life. Once she has composed her still life story, she will then perfect
her lighting, choose her palette and demonstrate her approach to painting the still
life. The still life set up will remain in the gallery and artists are invited to paint it.
