“As exhibiting my work is, in itself, an attempt to meet the spectator at least half-way, I leave the understanding of it up to them”. – Charles

Charles will be joining us at the WAA to lead a workshop in oil painting.  He will discuss the ‘keying’ of paintings and the relativity of these things.  The process of oil painting itself along with the principles of building up a painting will be the focus of the five days.  We will be engaged in both still life and portrait painting where students will be encouraged to use their paintings as a place to expand their vocabulary and challenge perceptions whilst not being tied to a direct route to a finished product.

The set up will be sight size and models will be used for half of the day.
