• Your still life needs to have a reason for existing, such as an idea, formal notion (color, tone, etc.), mood, theme, point of view, a communication, etc.

•  Identify elements and motifs that are repeating, in contrast with one another, or are out or in balance.

• Reveal how well you’re using the three-dimensional space, often described as planes, such as foreground, field, and background.
