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....

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.

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.

Chateau Elan is north of Atlanta on Hwy 85 going toward Greenville, SC. It is able to be seen from the Hwy so is easy to find. Would love to see some of your troups!

Keep us informed -- as you will of course -- about the show in Oct.

Here is information that Toby Reid has sent to me for posting on the event site. I will also post this information on the Georgia Plein Air Group, Southeastern Pastel Society and the Eastern US Artist Network groups. You will also find this on the "Event" tab and look for Chateau Elan Event.

Here are the details for the paintout at Chateau Elan - May 8 and 9 from 9 to 5 or later if the Artist wishes.

Go north on I-85 towards Braselton and you will see signs and the Inn on the left.

We will park behind the Winery. The Winery is the building straight in front of you as you turn into the property. Take your first right after entering the property towards the Inn and keep following around until you are behind the Winery.

Toby Reid will bring a table and a clip board for signing in to put in the parking lot.

The Inn (white table cloth) and the Winery (casual) both serve food if anybody wants. It might be a good idea on Mothers Day to check at the Inn if they are doing reservations.

There are many restaurants turning left out of the property and a Grocery store. There is one gas station ( BP ) but I would not use it as it is very expensive per gallon.

Chateau Elan is not providing anything for us, except to be on their property; so everybody needs to bring what they will need for the days. There are restrooms in the Winery, Spa and the Inn. I don't know if the Stables have restrooms but I would guess that they do. There is another property there called Legends at Chateau Elan that has gates with codes to get in and we have not contacted them as it is a porivate home and golf course division.

Please be courtious to the golfers, Spa and tennis folks that will be there.
