Pieter Claesz (Amberes, 1597-1660). Vanitas Still Life, c. 1630

Pieter Claesz - Vanitas Still Life. Still life was often presented with Vanity. Here we see the skull for example.

Tingjian’s second sketchbook page contains another highly accurate drawing from observation: a mixed media drawing of an animal skull. Working primarily in black and white, students are able to focus on tone and form, gaining proficiency in these areas, before contending with colour. Without a doubt, this is one of the most outstanding International GCSE art sketchbook pages I have ever seen.
