Charles Neal was born in Surrey in 1951. He lived in Wallington and nearby Beddington until his move to the Cottswolds in 1983.

From the age of 14 he studied art and for a period of ten years worked under the guidance of Malcolm Domingo and Frances Lane-Mason, then came the decision to follow his own path, to develop a more personal style and technique.

Living in a constantly changing world, where the present so quickly becomes the past, Charles feels there is a need to record nature, the countryside and the coastline before they change beyond recognition. Seasonal change, time of day, different combinations of light and atmospheric effects all offer the artist a real challenge.

Charles Neal is totally dedicated to his painting. He becomes completely submerged in his subject matter and produces an awe inspiring variety of Impressionistic paintings, all of which are full of color, interest and light.
