Details & Description

Title: The Study
Size: 14" w x 11" h
Canvas Type: Traditional Stretched Canvas
Shape: Horizontal (landscape)

This painting depicts a still life of vintage objects typical of a home office or study. A stack of hardcover books, a feather quill pen, a candlestick in a tall candle holder, a pair of spectacles, and a glass of wine are arranged on top of an antique wood desk. The monochromatic (single-color) palette used in this painting gives it a vintage look. The painting is signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

The Study painting will need to be mounted in a frame before it is shown because the side-stapled edges are unpainted or raw.

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.

Your Feedback

“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
