15x33? pastel on panel
We usually think of reflections in terms of what they reflect. I wanted to show reflections that did not distract from the actual water for a change. The sky is reflected but I made it more subtle than usual and lowered the chroma of the colors.The movement of the water was very important to me and I used it to lead the eye around the painting.
Nautical Shops is pleased
and proud to present Christopher Reid’s original works that were inspired by
his time on the Carolina coast.
Christopher Reid was born in South
Africa, but moved to the US at an early age. He studied fine art at The Savannah College Of Art And Design and UNC-Wilmington. He trained in
all media, but currently favors pastel, acrylic, watercolor, and charcoal.
Christopher Reid currently resides in South Africa.
passionate about art, enjoy the act of creation, and hope to help people who
view my artwork appreciate the beauty already around them. Too many people
stumble through life without enjoying nature. Art is a form of communication
and it is as important what you say as how you say it. I am an optimist at
heart and I choose to use my art to talk about beauty. Since nature provides
the inspiration for art, I enjoy painting en plein air so that I can be out in
nature and incorporate all the senses into my paintings and better communicate
an experience of the place.
Original paintings by Christopher Reid featured here on Nautical Shops are
readily available through our website. If you wish to obtain prints of his
