Bennedsen is a prominent Landscape Painter who mainly searches for his motifs in meadows, which are situated in the natural state. With a fine understanding he has reproduced the Jutland Heath, the Kiits along the West Coast and the fjords that lead through the open landscape. Vividly, he has portrayed Autumn and Winter in Norway and Sweden with thereby spruce and birch forests in a naturalistic view that shows technical skill and mastery of the interplay of light and color.
