About This Style

Chris is painting a series of impressionism landscape oil paintings, in oils and acrylics. He uses his signature style as seen in the impressionistic landscape image above, with its texture, colors and abstraction. Although very time consuming, Chris finds this style of impressionism highly relaxing and enjoyable and cherishes the unique style and technique he established and nurtured since 1999.


His original ideas and creations are referenced from the memories of his life and childhood. He then places each stroke loveingly and spontaneously onto the canvas using a palette Knife.  

The impressionism painting is initially roughly sketched using paint then generally blocked in before the final layers. his final effect is achieved by layering his paint strokes capturing light and colour.


Chris hopes to include many more additions to his impressionism paintings gallery.
