Other than general sketching techniques, it is important to keep ratios and proportions of your sketching surface and subjects within your artwork into consideration. Learn how to stretch your paper, use and care of utensils, and sketch a real life still life, proportioning it to your sketching surface, and proportioning individual subjects within your sketch with your surface. Includes a short information session on how to compose a still life which will create a better understanding about still life sketching.
