Charles W. Reyburn paints outdoors standing at a French easel with oil paints or watercolors. His paintings are primarily done on location – the environment around New London, Kent, and Waterford in Connecticut – most times finished within a few hours. Reyburn writes of his paintings, “There is constant challenge of manipulating the palette of color and if I am successful (and lucky) that day, all may enjoy the finished product at a glance.”
Reyburn was a student teacher of art at the American International School in Vienna, Austria, from 1973 to 1974, and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting in 1978 from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence. His work is in the permanent collection of the Lyman Allyn Art Museum, New London, Connecticut, among other public and private collections.
