Art - Still Life

This term we will be focussing on Still Life.
A still-life is a picture of objects that don't move. Often vases, bowls of fruit, bottles etc. The artist sets up a still-life usually in the studio to do a 'study' of the objects. It may be a drawing or a painting. The artist looks at the objects and studies their shape, where the light falls and the shadows the objects make in relation to the other objects.

Many well-known artists have created still-life studies. Some examples are below.
