Title: The Study
14″ w x 11″ h
Support: Traditional-style Stretched Canvas

Description:  This painting depicts a vintage-style still life of 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 is a vintage still life painting hand-painted on a traditional-style stretched canvas with the sides left raw or unpainted. It will need to be mounted in a frame before it is put on display. Adding a frame will give the painting a finished look.

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…” — JD, Small Business Owners of Gab, 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.” — J Thomson, Cowboys, rodeos, horses & Cowgirls., Gab
