This is, as I said hugely enjoyable, and also an informative film. Charles is knowledgeable both about his subjects – I didn’t know that the statue in Piccadilly Circus is Anteros, Eros’s brother – and painting and painters in general. He also has the ability to analyse and understand his own working methods, as well as keep up a commentary and paint at the same time. These are rare skills, especially when done this well.

ARTIST JULY 2016
Australian artist Charles Sluga travels and demonstrates extensively, and his experience shows in this polished performance. Informed, informative and entertaining, Charles will keep your attention at all times throughout this packed film. His style is loose, though he points out that you can work anywhere on a scale between pure abstraction and the fine detail of hyper-realism. Here, he is at pains to ‘use the scene as a catalyst for designing a painting’ like ‘a beautiful white lie’. This means selecting and rearranging pictorial elements to create a harmonious whole. He also concentrates on the use of colour and tone to the same end. Filmed in London, this is a varied, fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable piece.
