Drawing challenges by Tangomiva #5 : “Nature Morte” – Still life

Everytime, 1 new compulsory theme, 3 mindsets, 3 ways to show it.

Since sometimes the themes left us some room to interpretation I’ll write both the original and the translation when necessary.

Drawings done by Eva, Naomi and ThatRestlessPlatypus.

#5 : “Nature Morte” – Still Life (The French word translates as dead nature)

Naomi : To me it was the “nature version” of a funeral.

Eva : I wanted to play with the codes and the rules of vanitas : with birds, candles and skulls among other things, but I didn’t have the time so I took what was in front of me.

ThatRestlessPlatypus : I did this one in a train stuck on the tracks during 3h. Drawing this actually made the waiting amusing. I took the theme quite literally, very literally…

Anyway, what do you think about it ? Isn’t it amusing how still life translates in French ? What does it evokes to you ?
