5 Instagram Artists Painting Still Life in Watercolor

While we’re hunkering down and staying home, it’s nice to peruse some beautiful still life in watercolor. Seeing the fruits of another artist’s labor adds loft to a flat day, and encourages us to grab art supplies, and practice.

(You weren’t thinking about comparing your work to their’s, were you? If so, read this on the perils of comparison, or this one on artists’ jealousy. Focus on the inspiration, and Stoppitt with the comparison.)

I think my very first love in watercolor was still life painting. It’s such an excellent subject to start with, don’t you think? Take a look at these talented watercolor painters sharing their still life paintings on Instagram, and be inspired.

Have a look at Matthew Bird’s still life watercolor paintings on Instagram over here.

A lovely still life in watercolor in front of the arrangement, in beautiful, muted tones by Tamara Kamaeva. Much of her posts are in oil paint, but scroll through to see her lovely watercolors.

I think Maria Mishkareva has the same issue with cat hair in her pigments that I do. Her still lifes in watercolors are beautiful, so have a look.

Do you know the painter Tati Shundeeva? Her watercolors include still life, figures, animals and landscapes.
Have fun perusing her incredible talent, and be sure to look at her videos.

The energy and color in Elke Memmler’s watercolors makes me race to my brushes to paint something.
Have a look at her gorgeous instagram feed.

Paint a Still Life Today?

So there are 5 still life watercolor artists on instagram to peruse and follow, if you like their work. It’;s interesting to me that so many still life artists using watercolor paint florals. I’m curious to see other subjects in still life watercolor – like food art, room vignettes, or single color studies (EX: all white, like eggs, a milk glass pitcher and a dove). What are you favorites?

I hope you feel inspired, encouraged and ready to paint something new. Maybe even today? Did you harvest any tips or tricks from looking at the feeds on either of the artists shared here?

If you have a follow a watercolor artist working in still life, please share a link in the comments.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you in the next post -


P.S. I just finished listening to this book, and enjoyed it very much. Have tou read it? What did you think?

Art Quote

A painter is someone who wipes the windowpane between the world and us with light, with a rag made of light, soaked in silence.
