About Chris Kenney
I created this website to have a place to display my artwork to share with family, friends and fans. As of end of September/early October 2022, I will now offer artwork for sale online as well as prints and cards.
I have been a committed artist since my early twenties and have mostly learned and studied on my own. Over the years I have gained skills through dedicated practice and I have learned from books, videos, and other artists as well.
I worked with pastels, watercolors, acrylics. and eventually got up the courage to work in oils which had always been a dream of mine. My first and favorite subject matter is wildlife. However in 2013 I started to paint regularly "en plein air" (French for in the open air) and fell in love with it. I painted all around my neighborhood dragging my "art cart" (a shopping cart pictured behind me to the right above) around with my easel and pochade box. I wanted to paint as much as possible from life and always wanted to learn how to paint landscapes.
From January 2021 to Nov 2022 I was a member of Dustin Neece's Painting Membership, a group of artists who meet online regularly to discuss painting, learn from Dustin, and grow as artists. Dustin is a wonderful teacher and I am very grateful to have studied with him. As of Feb 2023 I am now taking Watts Atelier Online Courses to develop more fundamental skills.
