Still Life Still. Mourning Trance is a record about loss and family, but also about coping and finding a way to enjoy life through all of the exhaustion. It's an album about waking up every morning, working eight hours, and still finding a way to celebrate surviving another day. In Still Life Still's case, that way was the only one the band knows - writing and playing music with best friends. The album was recorded and produced in Toronto by Alex Bonenfant Crystal Castles, Metz the result of that process is a weird, beautiful pop record, inspired by, and in honour of the brilliance and absurdity of real life. Those bittersweet experiences continue to be what drives the band and record. Through enthusiastic word of mouth and the band's infectious performances in the Toronto house party scene, Still Life Still has built a devoted Toronto fan base. Recorded largely live off the floor, the songs capture the band's raw and irresistible, thrill-a-minute live sound. Still Life Still has been around for nearly a decade, formed in the Toronto suburb of East York when the guys had just hit double digits and were barely tall enough to hold up their instruments.

T his step by step lesson will teach you the drawing techniques used to create a still life with chalk pastels and pencils on brown sugar paper. Steps 1 to 4: These steps demonstrate how to establish the lines, shapes and tones of the still life. Steps 5 to 9: These steps illustrate how to build up the colors of the still life. O ur still life lesson using chalk pastels begins with a line drawing to establish the basic shapes of the group and some of the reflected details on the objects. When you are working with chalk pastels it is not good practice to start your drawing using a black pastel or charcoal pencil as it will contaminate the purity and freshness of any colors applied over it. In this case the initial sketch was done with a violet pastel pencil. After some tests it was found that most of the other colors in the box blended comfortably on top of this color. T he next step in creating our still life in pastels was to focus purely on the dark tones, with a view to rendering the form of the objects, before applying color in the later stages of the work. A violet crayon was used to establish the areas of dark tone which were then smudged and blended using both a tortillon and tissues. A similarly colored pastel pencil was used for the finer details.
