New Books Due Out 2019

Of the two books due out this year, the first is Ready to Paint in 30 minutes, Boats and Harbours featuring 33 paintings and tracings of Charlie’s drawings included in the back. This will be out in July 19 and will be available from the e-shop.

          

A selection of the paintings in the book.

 

The process, Charlie painting and dictating the words. Who says he can’t multitask?

Of course, there has to be a dog picture!

 

The second book due out in October 19 is Paint Pad Artist, Coastal Landscapes. This book has actual Daler Rowney watercolour paper already printed with Charlie’s drawings supplied at the back. The printing cleverly looks as if you have drawn the image yourself in pencil. It’s up to you whether you admit this or not when everyone admires your finished picture!

Some pictures from the book.

And again, the process.

April French Holiday

Charlie has been in France with a painting group at Chateau Quesmy in Picardy. This is a converted barn in the grounds, by the moat.

The weather was a bit changeable but they managed to get out and about and did some lovely paintings.

This gazebo just inside the chateau ….

And a trip out to Pierrefond yielded this painting

Of course, there were a few visits to the local cafe afterwards. A little aperitif before dinner!

  A good time was had by all.

 

Mishmash in Padstow!

Charlie’s Fish for the Fisherman’s Charity,  Fishmish, (www.fishermensmission.org.uk) has been named Fred the Fish and Jill (the owner of the famous fish restaurants in Padstow ) has chosen to display it before the auction in May. Well done, Fred. And Charlie!
