Charles Hill lived in Winslow in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He taught classes in water color technique using a five-color palette and usually only one brush in painting still lifes and landscapes. He left for England in the spring of 1984. He taught classes at Rogue Community College in Grant's Pass, Oregon, where his daughter now lives. It is reported that he is currently living in Portugal. He apparently left 20 original watercolors of Historic Bainbridge Island Homes to the Museum prior to his departure in September 1983. All of the paintings are vividly colored, framed, and in very good shape.
