Artist Comments

The Study is the first painting I’ve done using a monochromatic color scheme. What this means is that I deliberately chose to restrict the number of paint colors I used when doing this painting. The sepias I chose to use in this still life give it a vintage look.  This would be great wall décor for an office, study, den, or even a “man cave.”

What exactly is monochromatic?

A monochromatic color scheme is one that is based on a single color or hue. The color scheme’s other colors are all light and dark variations of that hue.

“Nice Work!! With the glasses I can imagine Ben Franklin in the other room…” — @Jddddart, Gab

“Excellent paintings. Do you commission work?” — @Spychiatrist, Gab

“Beautiful. This looks like a beautiful way to spend an evening. No computer, no mobile phones, no tv. In the age where the quill pen was used, work (and life) was generally harder, but the leisure time was better as well.” –@wheelbearings25, Gab

Artist Comments

Still Life with Clay Pottery is a monochromatic painting that features everyday household items that would have been found in a typical kitchen in Israel or Jordan during the Iron Age (1200-586 B.C.). While visiting the “Holy Land Photos” website, I found some interesting photos of a reconstructed Israelite House on display at the Haaretz Museum in north Tel Aviv. This painting is from one of those photos.

Artist Comments

One summer, my husband, Robert, and I loaded up the kids and headed off for an adventure on the Outer Banks to discover the lighthouses we’d heard so much about. We were living in Virginia at the time, while Robert was serving in the military and was only two hours away from the OBX (Outer Banks). Currituck Lighthouse was our first stop and the favorite of all the lighthouses we visited that fun-filled weekend. We were excited to discover that visitors can climb its 220 steps to the top and look at the spectacular view. We’ve been back to this lighthouse several times since that first trip, and we always enjoy seeing it again. This painting of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse depicts the fun time we had on that trip.

About the Lighthouse

Currituck Beach Lighthouse is located at Whale Head Bay in Corolla, NC on the northern end of the “Outer Banks.” Its distinct unpainted natural red brick appearance contrasts with fellow lighthouses along the North Carolina coast, which are painted in striking black and white. The lighthouse was constructed in 1875 and is still being used today to light the dark stretches of the southern Atlantic coastline. Annually the lighthouse welcomes an average of 185,000 visitors.

Title: Still Life with Coral and Lantern
Size: 14" w x 11" h
Canvas Type: Traditional Stretched Canvas
Frame: Unframed
Signed: On the front 
COA: Signed Certificate of Authenticity

A nautical still life painting consisting of coral and lantern. The turquoise and tangerine coral sit in front of a rustic lantern with a white candle on top of a round pink marble table. In the background is a nondescript wallpaper with splashes of teal and tan colors and a window that lets in a strong light shining in on the table setting. The original painting is signed in the lower left-hand corner by oil painting artist Teresa Bernard.

Still Life with Coral and Lantern is hand-painted on a conventional stretched canvas and is not framed. The side-stapled edges are unpainted or raw and needs to be framed before it can be displayed.

Artist Comments

Artists will often use reference photos to compose their paintings. Sometimes they will create their composition from only one photo, and other times several photos are used. There’s nothing wrong with painting from photographs; artists do it all the time.

Still Life with Coral and Lantern combines several such reference photographs that depicted the nautical elements I wanted to portray in my artwork. One of those elements was coral. Coral can be in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Although, pinks and reds are the most common colors. They are tiny sea creatures that live in the ocean in large colonies that look like plants. They will live all of their adult lives in one place and prefer places where the water is warmer. When they die, their skeletons form a hard stony substance, also called coral. Large deposits of coral often accumulate to form reefs or islands.

I had never used coral in a painting before, so as I considered painting a still life with a nautical theme, I felt it would be interesting to include some coral in this one. I’m happy with how it turned out, and I especially like the nautical lantern to finish out this marine-themed still life.
