Christopher Gallego, Teapot, 1997, Oil on board, 9 x 12 in., Private Collection

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.
Artist: Christopher Gallego,

Christopher Gallego will discuss technique as well as the mental game of painting in private tutorials 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 but who are committed to their art.
