There is a stunning new picture in the Members Area for members to tackle.

Horses Exercising on the Beach IS NOW AVAILABLE AT £200 (as previous sale fell through). It’s an acrylic on box canvas 20 x 30 inches.

To start the New Year off, Charlie has been working hard on magazine articles and two new books which are due out this year.

The latest Paint magazine (SAA) featured this painting.

And Leisure Painter published this painting in the March edition (out now) both with step by step instructions.

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.

And in between all this, Charlie managed to do some paintings at home.

Amble Harbour is sold (to the cafe overlooking the harbour)

and two Christmas cards for the Greeting Cards company.

Now it’s wine time!!!
