Artist Process: Leo Mancini-Hresko

We thought it would be fun to share a collection of progress images from Waltham-based artist Leo Mancini-Hresko!  Leo has a great eye for unique vantages and has the ability to make some of Boston's most iconic images his own. 

A great image to remind us of all the snow this past winter provided us -- refreshing during this current heat wave we're having!  Leo enjoys getting out and painting plein air, even in the snow.

Three images showing Leo's process on a painting of Boston from his vantage on the BU Bridge.  The last image shows the piece in Leo's studio -- soon to be in the gallery!

Painting the BU Bridge this past February. 

Three images from a recent painting session at the base of the Longfellow Bridge.  Can't wait to see the final painting!

You can catch Leo painting all around Boston, but we're thrilled that he will be joining us this July for a demo right here in Beacon Hill!

Leo also has some fantastic workshops, studio demos, and of course on-going studio classes on the books this summer: Leo summer teaching.
