Stewart White, AWS, NWS, is an artist and architectural illustrator residing in Baltimore, Maryland. He paints outdoors and in the studio using outdoor references and sketches. Stewart is known for being one of a handful of watercolor plein air painters who has taken top awards from Plein Air Easton, The Olmsted Invitational and The Wayne Plein Air Festival, to name just a few. He is also a past winner (2014) of the Plein Air Salon competition.
Stewart’s painting style is primarily derived from the American Impressionists and the regional works of the Ash Can School of painting. The Impressionists influence the capture of light and the rendering of form and the Ash Can works inform a familiar human narrative.
He attended Pratt Institute NY in 1972 and later earned a BFA from UC Berkeley. The major themes in his work are urban landscapes and the joy of travel. When not painting and doing workshops, Stewart works as an accomplished and well respected architectural illustrator. He is President Emeritus of the American Society of Architectural Illustrators (ASAI). Stewart is represented by The South Street Gallery in Easton, MD.
During the fall of 2018 Stewart will conduct two workshops in France.

Paint each day in some of the exact locations frequented by this volatile pair of passionate artists. This trip is as much about feeding your passion as it is about the painting so don’t be intimidated! Beginners welcome. Registration closes July 24th. Space is limited. Read more now.
