Hot Chocolate Deluxe with Meringue
20 by 20cm acrylic on canvas still life, inspired by a cafe I go to where the lady also makes meringues, so you get one with any beverage. I love the way the whipped cream on the top of the chocolate echoes the shape of the wee meringue. I never have actually tasted this confection, but my friend always used to drink it, so I took a pic and 'replaced' the plain white cup and saucer with a prettier one.
Border Country 2
Acrylic on canvas 30 by 30cm
I love the patchwork field effects around me where I live which are always changing colour and texture with the farming calendar through the seasons
Most of my writing is done in my blog and within my creative writing, using my pen name of Lynne Fisher. I really enjoyed creating an artist character with associated creative angsts in my novel 'On Turtle Beach' (set in Dalyan, Turkey), as one of the two sister protagonists. Chapter 4 is kind of a personal manifesto for me! The novel was a joy to write because I was able to use that artists observation which we all have, so intense and wonderful once cultivated, in such a special place as Dalyan which I had personally experienced on holiday; beach, land and sea and many exotic plants.

LynneHendersonArt's Profile Picture
Lynne henderson
United Kingdom
Artist and illustrator in natural history, botanical painting, generic landscape, still life. A love of detailed observation of the natural world, vivid colours, textures and decorative effects hopefully all come together in my work.

Stylistic influences medieval paintings, the Pre-Raphaelites and the decorative art movements, so it’s clear I enjoy line, colour and detail. I love the journey through a drawing or painting, from initial brief or idea, to processes, to final result. Having taught my own art classes for ten years, I have recently drawn these to a close to make more time for my creative writing, which dovetails beautifully with my painting.

I work in a wide range of media with a passion for methods and techniques, from watercolour and tonal pencil or pen and ink, to acrylics and mixed media. I have a lot of work to share, having been painting seriously since 2003, but I'll keep it to a steady trickle and enjoy the ride with you all, getting to know your work too.

If you are interested , here is a video of stages of work through a selection of my paintings…

Since I'm just getting used to this site, please bear with me for the communication as I learn to navigate my way around it. But most importantly, thank you for the welcome!

All my images are now available as framed prints, canvases and many other products from my pages at:

I have not found the other article.  I am still searching.   But, I did use the pages below to "get my thinking unstuck" in composing still life setups.   I see that in my absence they have scattered the information and changed headings.  There is now a main page and I did find some of the information on two pages off of that main index page.  There may be more off of the index.

These may or may not be of use to you.  But, I will list them.

i) Index: "For Artists" with links, See…

ii) Applicable to still lifes in pertinent parts : "Design - Instruction, Notes and a Tutorial for the Advanced Artist"  See…

iii) Applicable to still lifes in pertinent parts:  "Still Life - Seek objects with:" and "Composition Fundamentals" See…

At your level, this may all be too basic. 

Anyway, I had lost the link but remembered the Keene part and did a search.

I hope that it is of some use.  When he had it all on one long page ... I liked it better.
But, I guess the rework is neater.
Cheers :)
