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.

At The Publishers

In July Charlie was in a hot studio, preparing his next book for Search Press.

This is the process…..                

Charlie is painting under the hot lights (in the hot weather!)

While someone is on the computer, taking down his words to go with each picture.

 

At the same time, a photographer is taking step-by-step snaps.

Here is a bit of a taster!

And this one, sure to be a hit with Frank and Bert.

This book will be out next year.
