Charles T. Matheson
Charles developed his painting skills as a practicing architect, delineating many designs using watercolor. He focuses on landscape painting with many sketches in the outdoors particularly following his lifelong pursuit of fox hunting and driving horses. His book, Hunting Sketches on the Run, has been happily received in the sporting community. He has been a visiting scholar for the University of Virginia School of Architecture, Venice Program, teaching analytical drawing and watercolor studies. His paintings are representative of his visual journey through the many venues of his sport and travels. Usually manipulating watercolor washes, Matheson occasionally turns to oil and abstract interpretations inspired by written narratives. Charles Matheson works from his studio and home in Markham, Virginia.
