Charles Newman – Painting the Interior Space (Online Class Recording)

Date recorded: Friday, December 15, 2023
Medium: Oil or acrylic

Come and see how Charles Newman creates the overall character of an interior space.  See how he starts the painting  with an almost notan like sketch approach for the underpainting, mapping out an overall design, then how he develops the painting through layering, adding and taking away paint, and varying edge qualities.  You will see his approach on how to use cool light vs warm light to control a sense of space within the overall motif.  Charles’s overall goal is to have the viewer feel like they are a part of the space and to give the sense that the space is being lived in and/or worked in.

Charles Newman received his Master’s Degree in Fine Art from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2008, focusing on plein-air painting; he earned a BFA in Painting from Rowan University in 2002. In 2001, Charles studied painting and photography at the Scuola Lorenzo de’Medici in Florence, Italy. Charles continues to paint en plein air. He is an accomplished craftsman and currently works at Provenance in Philadelphia, PA, specializing in architectural salvage materials and antiques. He is known for his hand-crafted frames made with salvaged wood and custom home restorations. Charles has received numerous awards at Plein Air Festivals along the East coast, including First Place at Cape Ann Plein Air 2022, Second Place at Plein Air Easton 2019, and was featured in the Aug/Sept 2018 issue of Plein Air Magazine. He was awarded Best in Show at the Philadelphia Sketch Club’s 150th Annual Small Oil Painting Exhibition.
