Still life has been a popular form of art for many hundreds of years, offering a wide choice of subjects, styles, and scale. Whether you want to work outdoors or at home, with carefully detailed studies or bold sweeps of line, with classical subjects or simple objects that you might find in your home, you will never be at a loss to find inspiration.
