Piece description from the artist
This is another master study I did during my oil painting workshop, in which we take a painting by an old master painter and paint our own version. This is a study of "Early Autumn, Montclair", painted in 1891 by American landscape painter George Inness. His paintings were quite enormous, leaving lots of room for detail, which he did utilizing the texture and stickiness of oil paint. This is my favorite painting by him, and I was quite excited to paint my own version of it. I learned a lot by doing this painting, and so did my students.
Christopher Clark specializes in oil paintings of many subjects: romance, dancing, music, Italy, animals, and cityscapes. His impressionist style is compelled by bold brushwork, brilliant colors, and a luminous sense of light.
Christopher Clark has studied art his entire life, ever since he was a boy watching Bob Ross painting shows on TV (that wacky guy with the afro painting "happy little trees"). His art studies and travels have taken him all over the world in pursuit of culture, art knowledge, and painting subjects.
Christopher's favorite subject to paint is light itself, meaning anything becomes a beautiful subject if the light is stunning. Christopher's paintings are collected all over the world, and he is available for commissions of all kinds.
