Description

Creating pictures through the mediums of painting, drawing and photography is a key element in how Chris Spiker enjoys life. Observing light and shadows playing through trees and across paddocks in the evening is one of life’s greatest visual pleasures, says Chris. He loves birds! He loves how they display their gentle and kind mannerisms, their calls and their diverse appearances. Chris is also fascinated by their sometimes seemingly harsh ways of surviving and of course their very natural flighty characteristics.

Chris’ preferred medium has predominantly been watercolour with a “spattering” of drawings using ink and wash, as well as pencil drawing. All of his watercolour paintings are created on the finest quality (Arches 300gsm) hot-pressed paper, which provides a beautiful smooth surface for capturing detail and completing fine line work. Chris uses only the finest quality professional artist’s paints available.

Aspects stocks a range of Chris Spiker's original watercolour paintings, limited edition prints, open edition prints and greeting cards.

Made in Western Australia.
