Charles Ritchie 'Self-portrait with Lamps and Open Journal' (2019-2020)

Artwork Presentation

'Self-portrait with Lamps and Open Journal’ (2019-2020), portrays a tranquil suburban landscape from the artist’s studio window. The incredibly small but detailed work contains years of time, experiences, and changing emotions. This work uses both gouache and watercolors to emphasize interactions between opaque and transparent colors and features the artist's actual studio desk, as well as his exploration of light.
