“Using oil is very different from how you paint in watercolor: The first thing you do is find a white dot and paint around it, and you don’t touch it afterwards. So, what’s white is exactly what’s left over.” – Steve Barton
For almost two decades, Marcus Ashley Gallery has been an inescapable destination for tourists visiting Lake Tahoe, the Sierras, Northern California, and Nevada. Walking through the hallways of its 4400 sq. ft. showroom is both delightful and incredible. The impressive panoply of magnificent artwork on display includes an extensive collection of Eric Christensen art. These hyper-realistic paintings of wine art are a constant favorite among the gallery’s guests.
Cellar Selections illustrates but a few of the reasons Christensen’s pieces elicit admiration. The self-taught artist invented a watercolor technique that imbues his images with such vivid tints that their depth could rival a high-quality photograph. It has elevated him to the coveted status of being America’s only watercolor artist accomplished in using standard watercolor to achieve hyperrealism. This proficiency is evident in the highlights and reflections on the fruits, the silver bowl, wine glasses, and bottles in this still life. A full cellar can actually be distinguished on the chardonnays!
