After purchasing, a link to the recording will be emailed to you within one business day.
This oil painting demo will be held live via ZOOM from the artists’ studio so that you can be up close and personal and listen to Chris talk about his process, materials, and inspiration while watching him work on a piece from the beginning throughout two hours. Chris will be working on a non-figurative painting that straddles the fence between abstraction and realism, using lots of unconventional tools like scrapers, brayers, and squeegees. Plenty of time will be set aside for Q & A.
