Charles L. W. Minty

Painting moments in time

 

 

Hello! I am a professional artist and painter of the city of Bath’s streets and architecture and of the people in it.

I was named Charles after King Charles III, having been born on the day that he was married to Diana Spencer on 29th July 1981. I’m often referred to by my given name, but also just “Charlie”.

My love of the city goes back to my childhood, when my mother would take me on day trips to Bath, at a time when many of the buildings were still covered in soot. As a boy I was in awe of this beautiful city, rich in architecture and resplendent with its Abbey, old shops and magnificent crescents and parks.

I enjoy painting all kinds of subjects, both ones that interest me, and commissions for other people. It is something I have always been able to do. I don’t work in a studio as I need the inspiration of being outside (plein air) with all of the interest an challenges it brings.
