Today, rather than talk about my drawings, I’ll talk a bit about the work of someone else for a change. That person is Willem Claeszoon Heda.
What was that? You’ve never heard of him. Compared to many other famous artists out there like Leonardo Da Vinci and Rembrandt, he’s not one of the better known artists.
Willem Claeszoon Heda (1594-1680) was a Dutch artist who was best known for working exclusively in still life. You can read more about him on Wikipedia.
His still life paintings are a sight to behold.
If you’re into still life, Heda’s pieces are definitely worth studying.
He uses a wide range of ellipses in his work and check out that table cloth. It looks quite realistic. This is a good example to study of how to render cloth folds.
