My first still life

Here are my Still Life painting that I have done in the Still Life 1 class in the Spring semester. I have took some painting classes before, but this is my first time I learned about technique and composition about the Acrylic painting from mixing colors, setting up the objects, etc. I was more like a photographer before, so this class really opened up my new ceativity to me. Thanks to my teacher and classmates. And my partner who helped me making board and esel....

A Coffee Cup. It was done with the limited palette.

Academy Statue. I wanted to be a movie writer, so I bought the souvenir statue. It was not any dream came true, but it still be used for my painting. ; p ) This was the practice of patterned objects.

Base Ball. This is my trial for the casual still life. I place the cap and glove in my garden. There was a weed glass and cherry petals falling on the ground. I was looking from the top, but in my painting, it was hard to show like bird eye's view. Also, there is no much the strong light and shadow in outside lighting, so I could not paint the objects shadows. Then, I decided to come back to the studio painting until I will learn about landscape.

Blue Vase. I learned the technique of the low key painting. I liked about how the vase recede to the dark.

Calpico. This is high key practice. I struggled more than low key with the glass shape, and prastic Calpico bottle. Acrylic tend to be thin and more away from realistic 3D image. I need to be working more on getting reality. But in my opinion, I can seek reality in photography, and painting is more for the creativity and originality....

Frank Lloyd Wright traveled outside of America for the first time, and went to Japan with his wife. There were 37 years old in the year, and he spent two months touring natural and historical landmarks from Nikko (North East of Tokyo) all the way down to (Shikoku island) Takamatsu.

He made a contract to build the new Imperial Hotel in Tokyo in late 1911. After a year of project delays and several trans-Pacific crossings, Wright finally took up part-time residence in Tokyo in January 1917. (Wrightian Architectural Archives Japan)

In 1918, Wright made a design plan for a second house for Tazaemon Yamamura who was the eighth-generation brewer of the famous sake “Sakuramasamurne,” in Nada (near Kobe.) It took a while …
