Artist Biography:
Christopher Jenkins is an American painter who specializes in transportation subjects and landscapes. He has worked for 30 years in the transportation industry, so he is familiar with his favorite subject matter.
He paints in a realistic style. His objective is to capture the essence of a scene or a machine, but without distracting detail. In many of the paintings, the artist has worked to create a sense of motion.
The paintings are created using a variety of high quality oil paints, brushes and other tools, including the painting knife.
Due to his schedule the artist is currently unable to accept commission work, but does make some new paintings available for sale.

The artist describes his creative process as follows: " I begin by making several pencil sketches from different angles and distances. Once I am confident I have a solid plan, I make a more detailed sketch with appropriate shading. Then, working on a colored surface, I begin painting, often without a drawing on the canvas. I complete a monochrome under-painting first, followed by layers of color, details, and lettering if needed. Because of the multiple layers involved, the elapsed time for a painting can be many months".

The artist is an associate member of the Oil Painters of America, an associate member of the International Society of Marine Painters an associate member of the Allied Artists of America. He is listed in the World Artists Directory.

Artist Statement:

Painting transportation machines is exciting and demanding work.  The challenge is to capture the essence of these great machines in their environment.   My objective is to create a painting that is accurate, yet not cluttered with excessive detail.  Many of the paintings are designed to impart a sense of motion and to convey the dynamic beauty and power of the machine.

I work primarily in oil because it allows me to achieve a high degree of control in color saturation.   I have found that achieving the appropriate saturation level is critical to the authenticity of the painting.
