Still Life With Peaches

 

Still life is a painting genre in which the image is composed of inanimate objects. Subjects in a still life can be - fruit, tableware, household objects, as well as things found in nature but removed from their natural settings, such as a fish on a table, insects, or a bouquet of flowers. Still life can be made in different styles (realistic, decorative, modern) using various techniques (watercolor, oil, pastel, digital). Floral still lifes - garlands and bouquets - are often complemented with items arranged on a table.

The following tutorial shows how AKVIS ArtWork can be used to turn a photograph into a classic still life.

  • Step 2. The preview window will show how the image will appear using various presets, making it easier to choose the best one. We chose the AKVIS Light Strokes preset, in order to not roughen detail and make the paint appear more fluid.
