At his Camarillo residence, Ron
Marlett worked on the under painting to his piece Classical Still Life with Fauna.
A large portion of the painting's outline sketch can be seen on the
white canvas. Ron's realistic style consisted of three stages. The
first stage was the under painting where Ron painted in the basic
colors to all the shapes. In the second stage, Ron turned the painted
shapes inot forms by rendering the highlights and shadows. In the final
stage, Ron focussed on painting simulated textures to all the forms.
Ron worked on the painting for 837 hours until it was finally finished
