Bridge - © Christopher Greco

"Bridge"
8x10" oil on canvas panel.
This was a very quick sketch and I was very pleased with it but...then I took it into my studio and beat the hell out of it. Sometimes/many times, it is best to leave them alone.

There was a lot of honking as my dog raced around the lake and chased the geese.
She wanted to play, they didn't.

Self Portrait

"Self Portrait" 30 x 20" oil on canvas. 
I am calling this done, mostly because I am tired of looking at it!
This was definitely one of the hardest paintings I've attempted. A self portrait is a constant battle that in the end you can't really be satisfied so much with the picture, but the challenge is an extraordinary learning experience.

Oil Selfie - © Christopher Greco





"Oil Selfie"
16x12 oil on canvas.
I have wanted to try a self portrait for awhile. This is my warm up painting. I found a crappy barn picture that I painted in Connecticut 20 years ago and recycled the canvas. I hope to do a couple more quick ones to get used to looking/painting my face and work out a more interesting concept and design.
The step by step photos help me see some of the more obvious flaws as I am working. The photos are approximately 15-20 minutes apart.
"Self Portrait Sketch"
12x9" oil on canvas panel.
This is the basic design for the self portrait I am working on.

Looking Back - Second 30 - 60 minutes- © Christopher Greco

"Looking Back"
20x16" oil on canvas.
This is the second session.  I thought the yellow house was too big so I made it a bit smaller. It took longer to photograph and post the painting than it took to paint it so far.

This is a view from a window at the back of my house and this is about one hour into the painting. There was also an old painting on the canvas that I am painting on/over. I'm going to try to photograph the painting as it progresses.

"Too Cold To Rock n Roll"
16x20" oil on canvas.
This is the view across the road from my house, I paint it every winter that I am home. After the block in, it became too cold for me to finish it outside so I took it into the studio to finish. Can you guess what I was listening to while I painted?

"Rhythm of the River"
16x20" oil on canvas.
The twisting, rhythmic movement of the water and the roots of the trees was the main attraction for me. While there is a similarity in the shapes they touch on very different emotions for me...
