Oil/Acrylics on Canvas/Board
Born in Edinburgh with a professional career as a designer, Charles has always painted and sold his work. A graduate from Glasgow’s School of Art, he studied painting under John Cunningham.
Working predominately in oils, his style of painting follows that of the Scottish colourists and he uses both brushes and palette knife in his work with simple broad strokes.
The West Coast of Scotland is his main inspiration with occasional ‘indulgences’ into other areas such as Dance and the Caribbean producing a ’series’ of paintings for each.
The next ’series’ captures a journey in Mid- Argyll - an area he has had a long association with.
