3x Enjoy digital painting with GIMP
Create your own still life painting! You can draw anything you want, but be sure that there is no kind of animation in the scene. Most of the time still life is some interior object just lying around (like an apple on the table or a bottle of water). In my case I painted a carafe of water on a table with a mandarin slice on top.
- Paint a still life object of your choice
- No animation in the scene (looking at your painting it should sort of make you calm)
- Make it on your own and don’t use a photo that you just edit.
