Buy Oil Paintings from this Site

181129 Lemon and Silver framed oils painting study by kevin mcsherry on canvas panel

Buy oil paintings directly from

You can now buy oil paintings from here. I paint a little demonstration still life or landscape painting at every class, as many of you know. It’s a good way to warm up, introduce new concepts or just repeat and emphasise the process of painting. Many don’t ever get finished but often I work on them after class if I feel that they’re working particularly well. Consequently, I end up with a large collection of these oils studies…and I would like to offer you a chance to acquire them.

I’m proud of all of them.

Since they are my studies, I tend not to put them in galleries as I feel they compete with the other artworks I do; the narrative paintings and absurdist work. So I’ve compiled the best of them into an online gallery on this web site.

If you’d like to invest in a small work of original art for yourself, or gift one, you can buy them here and I’ll either send it out to you or you can collect it from my studio. Some of them are framed, most not. If you want a frame, it’s best to allow a week for framing.

August Painting at An Grianán

 Thank you to all who attended last weekend’s en plein air painting weekend with me in An Grianán, home of the Irish Countrywomen’s Association. Thanks also to the staff there for hosting this event. Once again I enjoyed it immensely – and the feedback has been tremendous. 

I have to say, I learned a lot from teaching everyone as I always do. This time, we ventured out of the beautiful campus to paint in Termonfeckin itself and then at Port Oriel in Clogherhead. We were lucky with the weather, too. We caught a couple of showers but had plenty of sunshine to paint in.  We met colourful characters and interested passers-by who stopped to chat.

I’m so looking forward to making another trip to An Grianán. The staff are so friendly and obliging and the food is plentiful and delicious. Maybe, since the duller weather is approaching, an indoor weekend workshop might be worth considering…portraiture, still lifes and working with imitation gold leaf to bring a little sunshine back? Drop me an email if you’d like that – or have any suggestions.

Meanwhile, art classes in my studio are starting again next week. There are still a couple of places on Wednesday morning if you want to venture into the world of painting in a genuine artist’s studio. There’s always fresh coffee and biscuits to keep you going – and I do a demonstration painting at every class.

Paint small; paint oils; paint often!
