Meet Doug Clarke

Oil | Digital

Doug Clarke is an award winning Plein Air and Studio painter based out of Virginia Beach. He works with both traditional oils and modern digital art as his preferred mediums of choice.

Graduating with Honors, Magna Cum Laude, from Virginia Commonwealth University, Doug’s work has evolved from commercial to fine art. As an active member of the Norfolk Drawing Group, the painter strives for excellence in his figure drawings and paintings.

His commitment to life drawing and painting, led him outdoors to paint “en plein air”. There he realized his passion for capturing light and nature in his own personal way.

In pursuit of mastering his craft, he has participated in local and national plein air events across the country and has won numerous awards.

When painting outdoors, Doug is very passionate about capturing the vanishing landscapes of Southeastern Virginia. As an experienced art teacher, he loves to share his knowledge with students and other fellow artists. Presently, he is a commercial art instructor teaching digital art both day and evening courses.

Meet Charlie Easton

He is a Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (SFCA) and has studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and at Emily Carr University.

His teaching is now in demand and in 2021 he will be on the faculty at the Plein Air Convention in Denver, Colorado.

Charlie has a studio in Vancouver, but his first love is painting on location in BC, Alberta, California and beyond. He has had residencies in Haida Gwaii, with The Haida Nation and Parks Canada, in Banff and in Whistler.

He is a proud brand ambassador for the Canadian outdoor brand MEC who help him get to the remotest places to paint, and keep him dry.
