Still life painting offers the artist
the ability to use his own composition
in both shapes, colors and lighting. An
assembly of fruits, vegetables, bottles,
but not cats – they don’t appreciate the
“still” in still life. Chet has recently
restarted this classic approach to art.
Over the last year, Chet has realized
the potential of the traditional still
life painting and is in the process of
planning out a number of these to paint
in the next few years.
Again, the attraction here is the
ability to add dramatic lighting that
transforms a simple subject to one of
great beauty and intensity.
