Product Description:
Gregg Kreutz Oil Demonstrations: "THE ART OF STILL LIFE PAINTING" (115 Minutes, Oil). Gregg Kreutz works through the process of setting up the painting to completion. Gregg refers to this as a four-step process: placement, background, shadow and light. With this method, he knows exactly how he is going to develop this painting. Kreutz has superb teaching methods. He talks about each step, mentions every combination of color, explains what he is doing & why.

Gregg Kreutz talks about filling air, about casting shadows, edges, the punch of color and the thickness of light. His is a very complex setup. The glow, which surrounds the fruit bowl, is extraordinary, as is his application of paint to fruit, to glass, to wine bottle, to metal bowl. Even the table cloth comes vividly alive. Gregg shows how to start and finish a painting.

Gregg Kruetz Biography:

When Gregg Kreutz received his B.A. in English from N.Y.U. in 1970, he, like all good English majors, set out on a career path completely unrelated to what he had been studying. Namely music. He joined a band, learned to play the bass guitar (in a way) and because this was an era when record companies were willing to take a chance on extreme long shots, made an album for Atlantic Records. Ultimately though, Kreutz had to face the fact that to be really successful in the music business, it's probably a good idea to have some sort of musical ability. Kreutz had always loved painting and drawing and so he decided to shift gears and seriously explore his artistic potential. He enrolled at the Art Students League and after two years of study there with such luminaries as David Leffel, Frank Mason, and Robert Hale, felt he was ready to leave class and set out on his own and become a professional bicycle messenger.

He was married by now with a baby on the way, and delivering packages by bicycle didn't seem that fulfilling or even that profitable. Kreutz started looking around at other options. Since portraiture was something he was interested in, a friend suggested he go up to Provincetown, Massachusetts and become a sidewalk portrait artist for tourists. And since working with tourists is every man's dream, he started packing.


A few days before heading on up, though, he was delivering a package across town and as he was crossing 40th and 5th he ran into David Leffel (not literally). He told Leffel of his decision to go to Provincetown and Leffel said, "Don't do it. Sign up for the Washington Square Outdoor Art show instead". Which Kreutz did and ended up winning Best in Show and selling a lot of painting and getting into a gallery and just generally jump starting things in terms of becoming a full time painter. The moral was clear; when you have a difficult life dilemma, run into David Leffel (not literally).

And so began what was to become an exciting and fulfilling career for me (oops, I mean Kreutz) in the painting industry.

GREGG KREUTZ IS A WONDERFUL INSTRUCTOR AND FABULOUS PAINTER. I JUST VIEWED HIS "MARKET FLOWERS" DVD AND ON A SCALE OF ONT TO TEN, IT IS DEFINITELY 10. HE HAS A VERY CALM MANNER, VERY CONDUSIVE TO LEARNING AND HIS TECHNIQUE IS EASY TO FOLLOW. IT HEIGHTENED MY CONFIDENCE THAT I CAN TO THAT PAINTING. THAT IS WHAT AN INSTRUCTOR MUST DO!

The dvd is great.But the shipping [to Canada] was bad.I ended up paying ups an extra 66.00[for taxes and tarrifs collected by Canada].It was valued at 170.00 so I was charged the custom and broker charges on that price.<br />
Next time I hope you use usps

He is a great artist and I admire him very much. He is a master of the light and color. Everyone of his works compete among them.
