(SOLD) Study off Velazquez’s “The Coronation of the Virgin”

(1 customer review)

5×7 oil painting study of Our Lady after Velazquez’s painting from 1641-1644!


Ships free within the US!


Diego Velazquez’s depiction of the Coronation of the Virgin is among my favorites. My painting of it is highly zoomed in just on Mary, but in the original painting God the Father can be seen on the right, and God the Son on the left.

Velazquez’s loose style was a joy to imitate in this master copy – his brush strokes are all clearly seen and make up the majority of the changes in value and shape as opposed to a smooth, layered approach.His colors are vibrant, yet not overpowering, adding a regality and importance to the scene.

Our Lady looks downward humbly, letting the focus be on God, but in this cropping of the painting we are left to meditate fully on her humility, a humility we are called to imitate on our journey to Heaven.


This alla prima study is part of my training arc for painting the Litany of Loretto Marian series, which I’ve begun to develop on my Patreon! You can find out more about it here.

No prints will be made of the master copy studies.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
