About the Paintings

Sadie uses traditional layering and glazing techniques developed by the 17th century Dutch Masters to create her highly refined still life oil paintings.

Each painting requires up to ten thin layers of paint, sanding between each layer to create a glass-like surface. This method of painting is called Indirect. Sadie works on one Indirect painting at a time, and spends about 4-6 weeks on each piece.
