Russ Kramer: Inspirations, Adventures, and Methods

Through an oil painting demonstration, Russ will show you how he is able to create a unique “first-hand” experience in his paintings for the viewer, putting you right on board during some of history’s greatest yacht races. His works combine narrative, historical, figurative, and maritime disciplines, along with meticulous research and attention to detail, to create a real sense of the dramatic moment.
