Morisot Still Life
It’s interesting to occasionally mix things up and have students create a painting that is not on white paper. This floral still life project is done on black paper. The trick is to paint the drawing white first so that the other paint colors will really pop on the black. Chalk pastel accents are added to give the bowl and plate form.
