Eric Christensen began #painting professionally in 1992. Since that time he has enjoyed amazing success and a growing reputation as a celebrated #Winecountry #Artist. Self-taught, he invented a #watercolor technique that allows him to create images of vibrant #color that go beyond the look and depth of a high quality photograph. Christensen is truly unique in his field and is considered to be the country's premier watercolor artist capable of #hyperrealism through the use of standard watercolor.
By "pushing" watercolor paint to its absolute limits, Christensen has invented a new way to #paint with this traditional medium. Using non-standard watercolor paper and employing a #dry-brush technique, Eric starts out with thin washes then builds meticulously to over 30 subsequent layers of #paint. You can actually see the build-up of the paint layers when you look closely at his originals. Eric's technique allows him to achieve much stronger colors and shadows than can be found with traditional watercolor art; his paintings actually appear more like an oil painting on canvas. Christensen achieves his lifelike #hyperrealistc images through his genius for understanding the technical aspects of his subjects and his dedication to capturing an image as it truly exists. his love of natural materials, particularly #flowers, #fruits and #vegetables, also combine to make this possible.
