How to Paint a Still Life from a real setting - workshop at Reves Art Gallery

It was a cozy gathering at the workshop held at Reves Gallery, and the participants were a cheerful group ever so eager to grasp whatever I had to present. Gallery owner Mrs Rajini Rekha set up a beautiful Flower arrangement for the participants to paint which all of them painted with enthusiasm in an informal atmosphere, enjoying the strokes, the chatting and the lovely meal spread by the gallery. It was a beautiful experience.

The workshop got extended by one more day, and so I have added a few more photos. This time, the participant painted a still life of 'Goddess Lakshmi' with a smiling face.

Reves Art Workshop on 'How to paint a still life in acrylics'

I was thrilled when fellow artist and good friend Mrs Rajini Rekha - the proud owner of her own new Art Gallery --'Reve's Art Gallery', requested me to conduct an art workshop, that would be the first activity at her premises. I agreed gladly, and the art workshop on 'Learn to paint a still life in acrylics' took place on the 13th and 14th Dec 2014 at Reves Art Galley.

It was a first time for me too, as I was conducting a workshop for the first time. My previous experience in having conducted regular weekend art class was greatly helpful. What would have taken place in an eight class session had to be imparted in just 2 days, and that was a great challenge to me.

I was pleasantly surprised at the 10 cheerful participants (limited), who were ever so eager and highly absorbent of what ever was imparted, in such a short time. It was a mixed group including IT professionals, doctor, professor, home maker, architect and a even a couple of students from the 7th and 9th grade. They were indeed happy to take back home a self-done, and fully completed still life painting ready to be framed and displayed in their homes. 

Thanks to Mrs Rajini Rekha garu for the lovely experience and the wonderful arrangements including the nourishment that was provided to all, which I enjoyed along with all the participants.

How to paint an Apple- simple video demonstration





Due to lack of time to conduct art class, and also to make it convenient for those who would love to learn but cannot make it to an  art class due to lack of time or distance problems, I created a short video of 4.2 min - about 'How to paint and Apple' - easy method of painting using acrylic paints on canvas, with a single brush.
