Featured Demonstrator for April

Chuck McPherson

Chuck McPherson with the Big Brush


Entering his eighth year as a watercolorist, Chuck has garnered hundreds of awards for his paintings, earning triple Signature status with the National Watercolor Society, the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies and The San Diego Watercolor

Society. He served as Third VP on the 2011 NWS Board and two years as the Member Shows Director on the SDWS Board, plus a concurrent three year stint as Newsletter Chair on the Board of Directors for the San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild.

This intuitive artist’s artwork has been called ‘…a unique blend of draftsman’s skills and the playfulness of a mind young-at-heart.’ Watercolor is his medium of choice and he paints full-time, following his passion and building a reputation.

He entertains large and intimate audiences with a quick wit and a 6″ brush,

flamboyantly embellishing his painting with props borrowed from the crowd like lipstick and coffee ~ all giving his transparent watercolors a unique “emotion”.

Chuck brings an open, fun and entertaining attitude to his paintings, demonstrations, workshops and classes. He also serves as a juror for art shows.
