Chuck McLachlan

Chuck McLachlan

A former NFL football player with an articulate New England accent and the soul of a raconteur, Chuck McLachlan dispels the notion that there might be anything called a typical artist. Whether the subject is football or the latest book on Picasso, Chuck brings thoughtful and colorful enthusiasm to the classroom discussion. His work hangs in many private and corporate collections including R.J. Reynolds, Virginia Tech and the SAS Institute. Chuck has a professional background in Commercial and Graphic Art and is retired from a career as an Advertising Executive. He now focuses his artistic talents on the finer points of painting, and also enjoys teaching and lecturing. He is actively teaching workshops all around the country, and has a steady following of students who praise his nurturing and encouragement in their art endeavors. He has developed the ability to distill the essence of the subject deftly and simply, leaving the viewer's imagination intact to fill in the details. Chuck brings humor and storytelling to his classes and workshops. His emphasis is on design, form and color, keeping shapes simple. His purpose is to entertain the viewer and to create a mood or feeling about the subject matter. A painter of landscapes, florals and portraits, Chuck loves to paint both in watercolors and oil colors. Chuck believes there is always something new to learn and loves to see his students take chances with their paintings. Quotations / Artist Statements: "Watercolor is very spontaneous, it's exactly what it says, water and color, and with that, it's easier to create that special mood." "Be brave enough to live life creatively. What you discover, will be yourself." - Chuck McLachlan
