Charles was awarded a scholarship to attend a two-week master class with figurative artist Peter Cox at the National Academy School of Fine Art in New York!
Charles had the opportunity to study in-depth with Peter in the early 1990s, and has been very fortunate to be able to study with him again periodically since 2006. This current 2-week master class at the National Academy concentrated on multi-figure compositions and their inherent narrative powers.
Review Magazine describes Peter Cox as "...maybe the best figurative artist now working in New York." He has twice won the gold medal at the National Arts Club and has taught at various prestigious art schools in and around New York since the mid-eighties.
The pictures I've included here were taken in October 2006 and used in a feature article about Peter Cox published in the Spring 2007 issue of American Artist Workshop magazine.
