"Sunlit Oaks" A painting of ancient oaks by artist Katherine Schneider

The subject of my plein air painting is the light and shadows filtering through ancient live oaks leading to the historic Santee Gun Clubhouse circa 1908 on the grounds of the former Blake Plantation once the site of large scale rice planting now managed by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources as the Santee Coastal Reserve Wildlife Management Area. …

Hit by Truck

Just moved to New Zealand from Brazil. Went out for a paint, got hit by a truck. Didn`t get hurt, got up and went and painted, despite the bruises. Can`t find work here in New Zealand.  I am an English teacher, so I might have to move overseas again.  I am looking, planning, kinda thinking of an adventure somewhere. A long walk. I think I would like to go plein-air painting for a year, somewhere remote. In the back blocks, alone, where I can meditate, paint and read. Mmmm write too perhaps.…

My trip to China May 2015

Entering a Daizu village and having several buckets of water suddenly thrown over you (a form of friendly welcome during their "pour water" festival apparently!), then sheltering from torrential rain in a shrine just outside the village gates where the ghosts go to sleep at night, while the village children teach you their local dances, was all part of the experience of teaching the kids art at Longlin village in Xishuangbanna, China.…

Adventures at Hook with Thelma and Louise!!!

Well folks you may have guessed by now that I have a little camper van, an R V to my American friends. Last week I went to Hook Head for a couple of days with Thelma, my camper van, to paint.

I have gotten a tad more organised lately, and I load up my pochade before I even get got the vehicle, saves time and procrastination when I arrive at my painting spot!

Weather was fantastic when I arrived at around ten am. I got painting right away and had made my first painting by noon.

Packing and Transporting Painting Materials for Travel



I carry an empty half-sized french easel in a nylon backpack that also holds my sketchbook and a few pencils. I have a canvas satchel or a rolling backpack that holds panels and pre-cut flat pieces of linen that I carry in a makeshift portfolio out of thin foamcore. I tape the piece of linen to the backside of the board when I…

Hello folks

  This is by way of an apology. I stumbled across this site while researching something else, and happen to know one of your members, so signed up to take a better look. I am not an artist, I am an outdoor photographer, thus I really do not belong here. I have no idea how to "unsubscribe", so I'm hoping your web master will remove all evidence of my trespassing.

   Once again, I apologize....
