This artist has just released 3 brand new pieces for Washington Greenâ€™s new Autumn Collection.
Charles is well known for using light to create interesting reflections of colours in the still water from the surrounding fauna. She paints with vibrant colours to depict the greenery and flowers around the water’s edge.

Linda says that she likes to leave the viewer wondering what is just beyond the picture, or what is just around the bend, We can imagine what we like as the answer to that question is a mystery. Charles claims her inspiration is based on her surroundings, after all, she does live in the countryside in Hertfordshire close to a National Trust site! She often goes out into the woods with her pet dog and finds areas that inspire her to paint.

I especially love â€œLilac Timeâ€ because of her use of colour, there are so many different shades of purple and the reflections of the flowers cast on the stream looks amazing. However I also really like “Sweet Harmony” because of the vibrancy of the red shades she has used in the piece.

These pictures of her work just dont do them justice. Go to a gallery and you can really appreciate the textures and colour contrasts.
