Coffee Cup Still Life
Step-By-Step: How, What and Why of Oil Painting!
☕️No beans about it! ☕️ This coffee cup wall art painting is the ideal tutorial "pick-me-up” your oil painting has been craving! Whether you are just starting oil painting or an experienced oil painter, a still-life painting of a white coffee cup is a delicate challenge for everyone.
In this tutorial, using an alla prima method (meaning, paint it all at once), artist Stephanie Weaver emphasizes how to create:
- reflections by accentuating the lights and the darks
- a soft edge and hard edges to create a realistic 3D effect.
So, grab a cup of inspiration, your paints and relax into a wonderful still-life painting of a lovely white teacup and blue teapot.
P.S. Be sure to cover your cup of inspiration with something so you don’t dip and sip - 🙂 (I’ve been there, done that 🙂 )
This course is not open for enrollment but will be soon!
Artist Stephanie Weaver is based out of Huntsville, AL. She paints realistic landscapes, still life, pet and children’s portraits with a preference of oils using either an alla prima technique or the renaissance technique of applying thin glazes.
