In this art tutorial, I explain how to draw a still life accurately in a step by step process. I start by explaining how to hold a pencil at arms length and using it to measure height, width and angles of objects. By selecting the highest object and linking it with others I explain how to sketch out a basic shape which will act as a grid on which to measure all the other objects. Once the height, width and position of each object has been worked out it is then possible to draw out the objects, using the grid.
In this still life I am using a candlestick, vase and two eggs. The video is intended for beginners and children and students preparing for art examinations in schools.
