The success of a work of art has more to do with how we see, the way we think, what we feel and our ability to manage those things than anything we do on canvas.

The more powerful the perception the more effortless the touch.  Technique is just the delivery.

Christopher Gallego will discuss technique and the mental game of painting in private classes in your home, studio or via Skype & FaceTime.

Tutorials are for advanced painters and career women and men who came to painting as adults and are committed to their art.

All of my current students are exhibiting and selling their work. And launching their careers.

Strengthening your powers of observation and translating them into paint via alla prima, glazing and knife techniques will be the main focus of the tutorials.

All student work will be reviewed before scheduling a session.

Topics covered:
Advancing and receding forms

Editing and finishing a work
Getting Started in your art career
