Scotch

 
 "Scotch"
10 x 10 inches, oil on panel

It's hard to believe, but I've never painted shoes - at least ones that weren't on feet - in my life before this week! There's always something new to explore.

Pink Ring

"Pink Ring"
9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas on panel
$350

Experimenting with color in this one - Burnt Sienna and Sap Green, plus white! Proving once again that everything in painting is relative - a tube of "brown" creates gorgeous pinks when offset by its complement, green.

Greensward

"Greensward"
16 x 16 inches, oil on canvas
$700

Hello, it's been a while! I've been teaching a lot lately - both workshops and online - and having a blast. My studio panting time has been falling into two categories - quick studies and oil sketches, both for personal research and as teaching tools - many of which can be seen and purchased directly through Instagram -- and larger works, of which this is one. 

Thanks for looking!

A bit larger than I usually work! Here's a shot of the finished painting in my studio, with the still life:
 
 

I've got a workshop coming up March 2-3 in Portland, OR, and I could really use some help spreading the word! If you know an oil painter - of any skill level - in the area, please consider sharing it with them. Here's a link to all the info. Many thanks!

Linked

 "Linked" 
9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas
$350 

Underpainting to finish! I always begin my alla prima works with a tonal underpainting, which I then paint over immediately in color - not waiting for it to dry. Here's a short video of me talking more about it!

Red Heads

"Red Heads"
10 x 10 inches, oil on canvas
$350

I copy the details on these dolls pretty carefully - except the faces. It's fun to play with their little expressions, and shows me once again how small changes in a portrait can really affect the overall mood I capture!

Three Sisters

"Three Sisters"
10 x 10 inches, oil on canvas
$350

There's something about the texture of the painted wood of these dolls that I just love painting.  Thinking there will be more of these to come....

The Jungle

"The Jungle"
12 x 12 inches, oil on canvas
$400

I gave my online students a challenge this month to paint interiors....and then, I had to try it myself! Proving that my green thumb is not just stray Pthalo, (though it is that too), here are just a few representatives of my plant collection.

Winter

"Winter"
9 x 12 inches, oil on linen panel
$350

Thinking looseness, and a cool, wintry color scheme in this one. The warmth in the spoons and in the white mug reminds me of late afternoon sunlight on snow...

The One That Got Away

"The One That Got Away"
8 x 8 inches, oil on canvas
$250 

I know that when I'm going to the grocery store and painting in the same day, I've got an opportunity to paint radishes - because they don't last long looking leafy green once you get them home!

I always enjoy painting - and eating - this veggie.

The Fishing Hole

Sometimes I struggle with title ideas ("Orange slices no. 64," anyone?), but this one came to me while I was working on the sketch!

The Fish Dish


still life oranges sarah sedwick oil painting
 "The Fish Dish"
10 x 10 inches, oil on canvas
$350
Sold

Here's the value study for this one. Kind of fun to get back to ballpoint pen and sharpie! My forays into digital drawing have taken me away from sketches like these lately. 



And wow, here's the first time I ever painted this dish, in April 2008! Reminding me that this fish once had a buddy. But he got broken.
