Chris Acheson






I cannot get over the details of these amazing Oil paintings by Chris Acheson. The window reflections, the patience involved, the reminder as I stare at these to always take patience while I create.

Wow! The first, third and fourth I had to look about half a dozen times to realise they were paintings not photos. Absolutely amazing!!

Hi Leigh!

I would like to know what is the title of the song on the video called "great memories"...I love it! And feel ashamed to ignore the singer...but I assure it reminds me of somebody! ^^

Have a nice day!
Xoxo!

Wow! Thank you so much for putting Chris on my radar. This work is fantastic. I've been looking for a hyper realistic painting for a while and this just nailed it.

the store window painting is phenomenal - i keep looking at it to see where it might actually be a painting rather than a photograph. amazing!
