Charles Reid

Charles Reid is undoubtedly one of the best american watercolourists of the last decades. Charles Reid has long been considered a master of the medium of watercolor, and has written numerous books on the subject. His paintings are fresh and spontaneous, displaying his profound understanding of light and color and expert drawing ability. The viewer is immediately drawn into his rich compositions. His figures are beautifully rendered, in a simple, direct and natural, gestural manner that reveals his interest in painting the light as much as the person.

Some of his works can be seen in the Stremmel Gallery and Munson Gallery and Artist Colony online exhibitions. Enjoy them.

His books Painting What You Want to See, The Natural Way to Paint: Rendering the Figure in Watercolor Simply and Beautifully, and Charles Reid’s Watercolor Secrets are strongly recommended both for novices and expert watercolorists alike.
