Charles is a professional watercolour artist from Australia. His work has been described as creative, brilliant and evocative and in this film the emphasis is on variety. His approach is to use a subject as a catalyst to design and produce a painting. He simplifies the complex to produce paintings which are realistic but with an abstract feel, changing the mood, light and tone to suit his concept. Painting in London his subjects range from boats on the river at Isleworth to St Pancras station and Piccadilly Circus in the busy heart of London and on to Greenwich with paintings of the Cutty Sark and the archway into the Old Naval College, each painted with a different emphasis.
