A Gloucester native, Charles Movalli grew up with great artists, wrote about them, taught them and became one himself. After more than four decades practicing his art, he still enjoys doing it and talking about it.
In this clip, Charlie talks about constructing a painting with blocks of light and dark.
Charlie continues his discussion of painting with his definition of “simplicity.”
Charles takes great satisfaction from building up a painting from the most efficient series of brushstrokes – stroke by stroke until the scene emerges as a complete work.
