Here is an idea for a very different sort of still life painting. Not sure that I would have the patients... no I definitely wouldn't. Two artists from different sides of the world both doing a very similar thing. Top is 'Ghosted: Myrtle Acacia' and 'Ghosted: Christmas Bush' by Austrlian artists Lizzie Buckmaster Dove. The bottom image is by Nienke Sybrandy in the Netherlands.
