About Christopher Jenkins

I am an American artist who specializes in transportation subjects. I have spent more than 30 years working in the transportation industry, so I am familiar with my favorite subject matter. My objective is to capture the essence of a scene or a machine, but without distracting detail. In many of the paintings, I have worked to create a sense of motion.

The paintings are created using traditional drawing and painting techniques, and a variety of high quality oil paints, brushes and other tools, including the painting knife.

My process is 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 canvas, I begin painting, usually completing a monochrome or low saturation 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.

I am an associate member of the Oil Painters of America, and an associate member of the International Society of Marine Painters, the American Society of Aviation Artists, and the Allied Artists of America. I am listed in AskArt.com's Blue Book of American artists.

One of my paintings was published in the November 2011 issue of American Art Collector Magazine, as part of an article entitled 'Moving Masterpieces'. An article about my art also appeared in the January 2012 issue of American Art Collector, entitled 'Industrial Age'. Please see my advertisement in the current issue of Classic Trains Magazine. My painting Superpower at Scranton was used as the back cover of The Diamond, the quarterly publication of the Erie Lackawanna Historical Society. My paintings have been licensed for use on bank checks and picture puzzles.
