About These Articles

Charles wrote his first article for THE ARTIST'S MAGAZINE in 1984 following the publication of his second book, CATCHING LIGHT IN YOUR PAINTINGS. He felt it was a privilege to be on The Artist's Magazine masthead as a contributing editor.

In his words: Covering topics ranging from how Sorolla captured light to why Fairfield Porter disregards detail to 21 ways to mix green has been both a literary adventure and a re-investigation into my own approach to painting. My aim has always been to dispense information in a clear, concise manner.
