Inspiration

“I enjoy hiking around the bridges of Portland, Oregon, with my camera,” Christopher explains, “I step off the sidewalks to get a different perspective of the city where the landscape is framed by its bridges. The photos I use are references for me to create original oils. I create large scale images using projections or grids, from photo references, mixing colors similar to old masters’ technique to at least match the likeness.”
