Artist quality oils on loose Belgian linen


Title: Snelling Beach - Kangaroo Island SA
Medium: Oil on Loose Belgian linen
Size: 18 X 24 inches

This painting will need stretching

Painting inspired from my latest trip to Kangaroo Island. Snelling beach is a nice place to relax in the afternoon, maybe enjoy some fishing or simply looking at the waves. The rocks are red due to lichens and hence present a beautiful contrast to the landscape.

The beach at sunset is an ideal place to relax and reflect. The energy of the waves contrasted with the solidity of the rocks are metaphorical to the journey of life with all its ups and downs.

The painting is painted on loose Belgian linen however if requested it can be stretched and hung without need of framing.

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.
