Halloween Still Life by animalartist16 Halloween Still Life by animalartist16
Project in my 2-D art class where we had to paint a still life in all watercolor of the season, which happened to be fall, so she said do a Halloween still life with some Halloween objects she had, so I picked out the skull, the bird, the leaves, and the spider and scorpion, and the other people at my table added the rest. We all had to work from life and set it up each day, and everyone's was at a different angle, so they were all different x3 This was pretty hard and time consuming, and the leaves gave me the hardest time xD The worst part of it I think was setting it back up each day because no one would put it back the way I originally sketched it out D< So I had to switch some things around and had to kinda go from memory on some parts.
The background is completely random :lol:

Done completely in watercolors, not watercolor pencils x3

Art (c) Me

Woah woah woah!
Stop there!
JUST WATER COLORS??!!!
Holy crows..(literally)
The first i used them it didnt even turn out this good!D:
You are simply fantastic and i see your class is helping!:O
You did an excellent job over all and i love the colors.Especially the skull,great shading on him <3
I was going to say i actually like how your leaves turned out,its lovely :>
The crow would seem hard though :P
*chuckles*What we did in my still life class was take a picture of the setting and uses that to set it up again :3
I love it again!<3

Yeah xD It took a pretty long time, and so many layers o.O I never really did anything in all regular watercolors before, I did do a picture a while back with regular watercolors and watercolor pencils combined though :lol:
The skull. Was the second hardest. xD I had to make the color out of only like... black, yellow, and another yellow with a slightly lime tint to it I think x3 Then I had to add different amounts of water to get lights, darks, and in between x3
The main thing with the leaves were trying to get the colors right, and all the details in them and the foliage stuff around it >.>
The crow was actually easiest for me lol xD
lol we had to figure out how to set it back up from our sketches/memory x3
Thank you so much:heart:
