Artist quality oils on loose canvas


Title: Lake St Claire, Hunter Valley
Medium: Oil on loose canvas - needs stretching
Size: 12 X 24 inches

This painting is on loose canvas hence easy to transport (light weight). It will need stretching on stretchers or board.

This is the second painting from a trip I did almost two years ago to Hunter Valley where on a warm and sunny winter afternoon we went for a drive around this magnificent lake. This painting shows a different part of the lake from my first one.

The painting was painted using brush and palette knife for detail and more structured paint.

Christopher Vidal is a realist artist inspired by the style and techniques of the classical realist painters such as Caravaggio and Dutch painters as Rembrandt. He is also inspired by the American painters of the Hudson River School and the Australian impressionists of the Heidelberg Art Movement.
His works of art brings together classical realism from Europe and US as well as Australian impressionism.
With his work Chris finds a connection between his love for science, environment and arts. With his work he wants to show the beauty of nature and to re-establish the connection of humanity with nature.
