A NOTE FROM LILIEDAHL VIDEO PRODUCTIONS:
"We spent a week in Scott Christensen's studio filming the execution of both of the videos above. The first, a beautiful, large landscape painting developed from a small field study (Painting Large Landscapes) and the second, his latest video of three, smaller landscape studies painted in the studio (Three Landscape Studies) to illustrate important principles of plein air painting."
"Scott is a knowledgeable and generous teacher who holds back nothing in the explanation of his working process, and you will experience the feel of his energy and single-minded purpose in addressing this large painting, while listening and watching as it comes to life in his own studio on the blank, white canvas."
"If you have ever wanted to look over the shoulder of a master painter, these videos will allow you to experience that desire. His first video, "Painting Large Landscapes," also includes a visual tour of his studio and the environment in which he paints, and you will feel as if you are there during the entire creative process. "
"Christensen's work has been exhibited in many prestigious museums and shows throughout the country, such as National Academy of Western Art, Prix de West Invitational at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, OK, the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK, National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, WY, Denver Art Museum, Kimbal Museum, Salmagundi Club in New York, Autry Museum, Salon d' Arts at the Colorado History Museum. "

This painting as well as 61 others is reproduced in Christensen's 140 page book published in 2000 titled The Art of Scott L. Christensen.
