Tribute To Sheehan (A Study)

My tribute to a favorite landscape artist Dennis Sheehan.
Oil on Canvas Sheet 9X12 (Study)

Practice Makes For Satisfaction

When I have time to practice after getting home from work, I do with this painting box.  Either I'm referencing photographs or copying other artist's works.  Here I am copying (for study) a work from one of my favorite landscape painters, Dennis Sheehan.  I used a limited palette of white, ivory black, cad. red, ultra. blue, purple, cad. yellow, and burnt sienna.

Still Objects

Oil on Canvas 16X20

This piece was painted from my imagination and a very rough pencil sketch to show the direction of the light and shadows.  Only two of the objects exist. The bottle (vase) and the box next to it.  This painting developed over a period of several years with more objects being added and the background painted over several times.  The last object to be painted in was the flower.
