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 can be thought of as the delivery.

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

Tutorials are geared toward advanced painters and career women and men who came to painting as adults, who are nonetheless committed to their art.
