Charles Evans

Charles studied at Lincoln College of Art. He turned to watercolour because he says: "As many artists have discovered, it captures the beautiful sense of atmosphere, haziness, dampness and watery skies of the British landscape." In 1998 he was commissioned by Yorkshire Television to do a brooding type moorland scene for their TV soap "Emmerdale" which he did under the scripted name of 'Nathan Summers'. Soon after he was asked by Tyne Tees Television to do a short series of painting programmes for their regional series. The first three proved to be so successful that a further nine were made. To date more than 70 of the programmes have been made.

As well as being on TV, Charles is now one of the leading demonstrators for Daler-Rowney and he demonstrates all over the country. He is also making videos for a company called Teaching Art as well as venturing into producing his own videos and DVD's. Recently he made two videos for the Japanese, German, Italian and Netherlands markets. He lives in Northumberland where he writes, does stage shows, workshops and demonstrates to art societies all over the country as well as conducting painting courses in the UK and Europe.
