This class is just as soothing as sitting on the beach, watching the waves roll in… it’s just you’ll be painting them instead!

Christopher will be guiding you through the process of painting a beautiful beach at sunset, using methods that allow you to create lots of depth and detail on your canvas. You’ll begin to understand the use of colour and how to develop a painting using multiple layers of paint while looking at composition, colour, tone, texture and edges. You’ll be amazed at how much you’ll learn in just one session!

Even if you’ve completed an oil painting course with Work-Shop, the painting and the subject matter are always different – so you’ll always be learning something new!

After a few hours of learning, mixing colours and painting, you’ll have an amazing masterpiece to take home for your wall.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • All materials covered… brushes, palettes, and paints!


What to bring

  • An eagerness to learn something new!

  • Bring clothes you don’t mind getting paint on, or an apron.

Christopher Vidal


Currently living in Sydney, Maltese-born Christopher migrated to Australia in 2009. His love for the arts started when he was very young. For two years he attended the School of Arts at Palazzo de La Salle in Valletta, Malta. After finishing his academic studies Christopher worked as a medical researcher in Malta and Australia, however, his innate love with painting remained. More than ten years ago he started painting with oils and he fell in love with this versatile and dynamic medium. Travelling around Australia gave Christopher more inspiration and motivation, and since 2012, he’s been painting almost every day and exhibiting his work in various art shows in Sydney and surrounding areas.

As an artist he expresses himself in his paintings, especially when painting landscapes. His inspiration comes from his love of the arts, science, nature and what is around him. Christopher’s works are found in private and corporate collections in Australia and Internationally.
