Author of eleven books on watercolor painting, Charles Reid is an artist, teacher, and author, who focuses on clean color and the capturing of light in his painting. The following information is from his website: "his paintings are fresh and spontaneous, displaying his profound understanding of light and color and expert drawing ability. The viewer is immediately drawn into his rich compositions. His figures are beautifully rendered, in a simple, direct and natural, gestural manner that reveals his interest in painting the light as much as the person. Reid was born in Cambridge, New York, and studied art at the University of Vermont and the Art Students League of New York. He has won numerous awards, including the Childe Hassam Purchase Prize at the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the National Academy of Design and the American Watercolor Society. In 1980 he was elected to the National Academy of Design.

In addition to painting, Reid teaches workshops around the world. He has written eleven books on painting in watercolor and oil." Source
