The June 24 edition of the Gainesville Times featured an interview with Charles about his portrait demonstration that was to take place that evening at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center.
The article touches on Charles' ideas about portraiture and his strong belief in the importance of taking the time to gain an insight into the subject while the sittings progress. As the demo was geared to a general audience and not just artists, the article also lays out what the evening will involve - fewer technical details, more painting philosophy.
The demonstration Thursday night was a resounding success. It was held in conjunction with Charles' one-man show "Transitions" which will hang at the Quinlan until August 15. I'll hopefully have photos from the evening online very soon.
