Maker Spotlights: each day we will be focusing on individual exhibitors, exploring their work and finding out what makes them tick...
Charles is a painter who feels most at home with watercolours, having received a set as a young child. He now works from his studio / living room and also paints en plein air in the Wiltshire countryside.
Inspired by beautiful landscapes, "Heath Robinson" machinery and characterful faces, he is working on developing his technique in interpreting the beauty that surrounds him, shaped by light. More recently, inspired by Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the year series, Charles has a new and exciting challenge where he has started to paint in oils, pushing his boundaries to achieve realism with depth of tone and colour.
When Charles isn’t working as an engineer by day, or painting by night, he is a competitive ballroom dancer at the weekends with is partner Rebecca.
