About Charles Wemyss Art

Charlie Wemyss first received training in drawing, oil and water color painting from Mark Potter who was his primary instructor for four years in High School. The painting and drawing took a long hiatus for 40 years.

In the spring of 2018 he began to study and take his painting and drawing under the supervision of professional artist Sam Vokey, the course of instruction has been based on the tenants of the Boston School of Impressionist painting. Focus on draftsmanship, design of a work and values influencing the whole work that is being painted or drawn has been empathized over the last several years.

Charlie’s principal work is Plien Air and heavily influenced by “The Ten” of the Boston School of Impressionist painters. In addition to the Plien Air work he is using his studio to create still life paintings and cast drawings, and refine many of the Plein Air works. The various scenes of life, work, recreation are all subjects of his work.
