Title: The Study
Size: 14" w x 11" h
Canvas Type: Traditional Stretched Canvas
Frame: Unframed
Signed: On the front 
COA: Signed Certificate of Authenticity

This one-of-a-kind 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 in the lower left side by artist Teresa Bernard.

The Study painting will need to be mounted in a frame before it is shown because the edges of the traditional stretched canvas are unpainted or raw. This still life oil painting comes with an official Certificate of Authenticity (COA) with your purchase.

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 based on variations of a single hue, creating a palette through different shades, tints, and tones of that color.

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
