I love all types of painting, but I have to be honest and say that realist painting holds a special place in my heart. It’s so utterly thrilling to see the details of our three-dimensional world captured by the hands of a skilled realist painter. Christopher Stott is definitely among the masters in this regard. He uses a muted color palette and the banality of his subject matter to create paintings with a truly captivating, quiet beauty. It’s such a treat to visit his blog and see process shots and all the new paintings as they come together—check it out here.
