Traditional Drawing and Oil Painting

4.9 (38)

Chris is an artist who lives and works in Sydney, Australia. At the age of six, Chris developed an interest in drawing and at the age of 13, he attended the School of Arts at Palazzo de La Salle in Valletta, Malta.

Vidal's style of work was developed through years of experience in drawing and painting. He considers himself as a contemporary realist with his preferred subject being the landscape. Studying classical arts mainly drawing from life helped him to develop drawing skills and a keen eye for detail. During his studies, he was influenced by the works of the great masters. He is also influenced by the American landscape painters of the Hudson River School and by the Australian impressionists of the Heidelberg movement.

Chris is also a tutor and teaches drawing and painting to adults at various locations around Sydney. He emphasises the importance of drawing as the foundation onto which you can build up a solid skill in painting as you progress.

Having a solid background in science he gives importance to the quality of materials used to create artwork as well as to the importance of understanding why to use a particular technique in the painting process.

Ultimately the aim of the teaching classes is to guide you and help you develop a skill in a way that you will be able to draw and paint without any assistance and to also be your own critique.

Chris was a great teacher, explained everything really well and was available to everyone when needed. The venue, for me, was not great. Very hot and too many stairs. The only thing I was a bit disappointed about was that the subject picture was changed when we got there and I was really looking forward to doing the original piece. But overall, a great class.

Chris is very interactive with his students and is able to take into account the different levels of abilities. He puts a bit of effort into describing how to mix the colours and what the effects would be from light to dark.
