I enjoy creating paintings of the low country whenever I get a chance to visit this area. I especially like painting the light of the marshes and beaches. I plan to get to Savannah in the fall, if not sooner.

Hi all, I'm a member of the Charleston Outdoor painters... in Charleston SC and the Charleston Artist Guild... I'm a very rank beginner, only started painting May 2008... I do enjoy painting outdoors. The COPA group is painting this Saturday 6/13 at the Lutheran Church downtown... if anyone is interested I'll give you the website for details....

I recently added some of my plein air paintings of Seabrook Island S.C. to my site.

The Russell Jewell Plein Air Workshop has been cancelled...

I found out about the workshop via the Charleston Outdoor Painters Group... lets see... maybe 12 active painters... and let's count 1 watercolor painter (ME)... that's it, to advertise a watercolor workshop. No other mention of this seminar, in the other art groups or magazines in the city. Their website is a PITA, they don't answer email, or the phone, forget leaving a message they won't call you back.... and surprise surprise, they didn't get enough people to hold the workshop...ARGG. I sometimes wonder how some people stay in business... perhaps a rich Daddy left them Buckets of money... because they haven't got a clue...
Ok I'm done...

I'm in the Darien, GA area painting several times each year. Always love to have someone join me along the marshes! Will post the dates and places when I have them....

Yes, we were there for an opening reception on Friday for a plein air painter - Peter Rolfe. His work is great and he paints in Maine and Beaufort. You should have come to our paint-out at Palmetto Bluff -- we would have been happy to have you.

Can anyone tell me a good spot to paint in Savannah? Old boats & marshes usually attract my attention. I will be there Nov 20-22.

I am sorry to be so tardy in my response - I hope you get this. I am not too framiliar with Savannah but just a hop skip and a jump away is Palmetto Bluff - a very upscale gated community with beautiful marsh as you go through the gate and very safe. There are boats there but not old ones. I can't believe this would more that a half hour drive for you - that is what it is for me from Hilton Head and it takes me an hour to go to Savannah.

When I got to my hotel I realized I was within walking distance to the harbor. Thus each morning I gathered my gear and walked to the harbor. First morning I painted an old sailing ship in the fog. The next morning I painted the shops along River Street. I never did make it to the marshes to paint but took a nice drive and have lots of references for studio paintings. Next time I will try to get by Palmetto Bluff. thanks.

Hi Barbara, Just joined your group. I love painting the marshes so hope we can get together sometime soon.

Also wanted to let you know about discussions going on at the "Eastern US Artist Network" group and the "Southeastern Pastel Society" group about a potential paint out in Georgia at the Chateau Elan location. I know it is not the low country, but thought maybe some of your friends might be interested.
