When doing a still life, try to reference the real thing: the details that you notice will truly amaze you ! Here's an interesting tidbit to ponder: Edouard Manet, 19th century Impressionist painter noted ( and I paraphrase): "that 80% of painting is done without a brush." think of all the time that you have to decide which brush, which color, what brush stroke and you can see how this is indeed true. If you don't work on your art every day, at least look at it, stay in touch with your inspiration!
