still life by janaschi still life by janaschi
Whaoh, this took me ages O_X Mostly because I was only able to paint at night.
The folds killed me. I doesnt look like much work compared to the other things but the folds were a bitch to paint D:

Beautiful still life. I am amazed how you made surface textures ( glass, porcelan, textile, metal ). Just great !

Wow, lovely still life!! :) The arrangement looks so beautiful- and you handled the surface textures and sheen so well.  This is really amazing work- I'd love to see what the successive steps looked like, ha ha.  Must have taken ages to do this.  I'm going to keep on practicing still life until I can paint from life like this.  Thanks for the inspiration! <3

This is AMAZING! I could never do so many folds but I'm glad you did because it just makes the picture as a whole! I actually thought this was a high res photo from the small pic through DA browse.
Simply, a visual feast.

Still lifes are an invention of baroque (period of artistic style in the 17th century in Europe). People in that period of time had three main motifs in art which also represent their attitude towards life:
* "Memento mori" - 'remember that you will die',
* "vanitas" - 'transience' and
* "Carpe diem" - 'seize the day' (i.e. "Go have fun today... you might already be dead tomorrow!")

Skulls were stylistic devices which depicted the idea of "Memento mori": Skulls should remind the audience of their inevitable death.

The origin of this rather depressive/melancholic attitude towards life were the horrors of the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648) among them pestilence, hunger, marauding mercenaries and Reformation. One whole generation grew up during wartime - their lives were forever marked by this experience.
