    A great drawing is the foundation
    of a great painting. Charles Reid,
    the master of contour drawing,
    will teach you how to concentrate
    on interconnecting shapes rather
    than drawing separate objects.
    Discover how to simplify and
    avoid overworking by focusing on
    good paint consistency. Practice
    “direct painting”, using as few
    over-washes as possible. Achieve
    the correct color, edge variety, and
    tonal value on the first try. Charles
    is the author of Charles Reid’s
    Watercolor Secrets and Charles
    Reid’s Watercolor Solutions, and
    many more. He is a member of the
    National Academy of Design.

    Charles Reid has long been considered a master of the medium of watercolor. 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.

    Reid was born in Cambridge, New York, and studied art at the University of Vermont and the Art Students League
    of New York. He has won numerous awards, including the Childe Hassam Purchase Prize at the American
    Academy of Arts and Letters, the National Academy of Design and the American Watercolor Society. In 1980 he
    was elected to the National Academy of Design. Public collections of his work include Smith College, Yellowstone
    Art Center, Brigham Young College, Roche Corporation, and the National Academy of Design. In addition to
    painting, Reid teaches workshops around the world. He has written eleven books on painting in watercolor and oil.
    Recent awards include a Purchase Award from Shanghai International Biennial Exhibition in 2013 and a Gold Medal
    from the Portrait Society of America in 2013.
