Charles Marqua’s art is influenced by his education, career in architecture, and his extensive travels. He likes to explore personal place and time. The artist’s interpretation of each subject is both subjective and situational.
While historically a landscape and architectural artist, Charles is moving toward expressing the life-force “personality” of flora, fauna, figurative subjects and landscapes. Charles often uses filtered light and a limited color palette to depict the qualities and sensations of his subjects. His watercolor techniques include both wet and dry methods.
Dr. Marqua’s acrylic technique is affected by his classical training in watercolor and he borrows from both gouache and opaque methods.
