Vehement Reprisal by Dave Seeley


Dave Seeley recently posted this spectacular original painting on his Instagram page. “Vehement Reprisal” was painted for the “Smugglers Run” book, but the Phil Noto duo tone art won out in the end.

I believe that Dave finished it over lock down and that It is being offered to Lucasfilm, as they get first dibs on all Star Wars original art. I doubt very much they’ll pass it up, but if they do, i’m going for it.

Oil on Canvas, it’s 31″ by 44″ and it comes unframed, so i’d need to sort that out quite quickly as this needs to be hung and seen. You can see the incredible detail in these close up images. I like that image has been painted above a planet (Tattooine, perhaps?) The earthy tone really contrasts with the star field in the background and you can’t help but focus on the battle taking place here. There’s a lot of action and excitement you can’t help but want to know more about the story that’s being told.

I feel a little guilty too as I think I like this painting more than my Death Star Escape painting that I bought a few years ago, and I bloody adore that painting.

Apologies for the photos as they’re just screengrabs from Dave’s website.
