To start with a still life or a portrait painting first.

Hi everyone.Hope this does not seem a silly question but here is my dilemma.Very motivated to start my first painting and everything ready except my studio is not ready for a still life and will not be for a few months yet.I always wanted to start my learning with a still life but wondered would starting with the portrait painting be best or would it be too advanced for a first time painting?


  • Thanks gfish.I was hoping to start with a wine bottle and glass in my still life.It may be April until i can get the room with the correct light.Maybe i should wait!!! :(
  • Thank you so much Savannah.Yes positive attitudes are so important.I guess with me i am a stickler for procedure and felt it was against Mark's teaching but as you say i have nothing to lose. ;)
