Painting in Shangli China
Then I Am  Returning to Paint in Shangli China 2013
The painting in this amazing historic village in Sichuan province was so beautiful in 2012 that I am going back for more
 in April and May of 2013! 
Check on my blog for updates on the trip at

Bridge in Shangli

In Septemb
er 2012 I journeyed back to China for my 7th time to plein air paint and visit my daughter who is teaching in china. It really helps that she is an avid painter and was happy to accompany me for a short break to Sichuan province to the beautiful historic village of Shangli, not far from Ya'an and very close to Bifengxia with its pandas and wonderful canyon and world's highest scenic tourist elevator to a wonderful canyon.  I will be returning there this spring to paint as well.We had a
Prof.Wu at home at Music Garden near Chengdu with Wife Tina and Angie and Kelseyovely afternoon along the river by the historic bridge.  Each of us painted a different view.  We met up with my dear friend Prof. Tommy Wu and his wife at their home in Music Gardens, a suburb of Chengdu.  We had a lovely visit with them and returned to the neat tourist town of Huanglongxi.
Many artists and students go to the historic village of Shangli to paint.  There was a large group of students there when we were there.

My painting setup in Wuxi on the Canal at Nanshan Temple
Here is my setup when I am painting back at Nanshan Temple in Wuxi.  Kelsey's holiday was over and they were back to work.  I was lucky and got to return to "work" painting!   I got to enjoy more great lights along the canal at one of its many  fine bridges.

On tour of the Phoenix Art Museum Phoenix Public Art Museum in Wuxi China Angie  McIntosh meeting head product designer for Phoenix Art Supply at factory in Wuxi China

Angie in Park with friend Cathryn

I will also return to the Phoenix Private Art Museum to check out their display of wonderful contemporary Chinese artwork and will also be be looking to see if they have completed the neighbouring artist' studios.  I am hoping that one day I might visit and paint here.  I was told to check it out by the Staff at the Phoenix art Company where I met the head product designer and an assistant who spoke English.  She gave me wonderful tour of the magnificent private collection of contemporary art at the factory.   The  Phoenix  Art Supply company is the 2nd largest art company in the world.  The staff were curious as to why I came to China to paint. 

Professor Wu Sculpting
They were surprised to hear that I had travelled to Beijing originally in 1987 and through the kind assistance of Prof. Wu had  studied privately at the Central Academy of Fine Arts with a few renowned artists Prof. Wei and Yang Feiyun, who is now one of the top selling Chinese Contemporary artists according to Sotheby's Auction House.  He had just recently been in Wuxi for the opening of the Phoenix Art Museum.  

Portrait of Angie Roth McIntosh by renowned Chinese oil painter Yang Feiyun of the Central Acadamy of Fine Arts
I was very fortunate
Mr. Yang  painted a lovely oil portrait of me back in 1987.

 The staff were amazed that I had artwork by him. I also have a lovely watercolour of his wife Pengpeng.  She was often a subject in his oil paintings and modeled in my class.  Back in 1987 I was really disappointed I had to cancel out on a visit that I had arranged for famous American actor Gregory Peck to meet with these wonderful artists.I met Mr.Peck at lunch one day in the fall of '87 at the new Great Wall Sheraton Hotel when he travelled to China for the Education Film festival.. Unfortunately I had to cancel our appointment because in those days you couldn't easily make travel arrangements and my train was booked to Qingdao and my ship was sailing for Shanghai during the only time when Mr. Peck could come.  That story will have to be subject to another post along with pictures of Yang Feiyan's wonderful work that he had me take as he was hoping that I could help him market his work in North America--now Sotheby's is doing a fine job of that!.

Penticton Plein Air Group

Angie painting in Kaleden Angie painting at Okanagan Marina Penticton Nel Witteman painting in Motorhome on a rainy day

While my goal to gain some mastery of the oil medium by getting a plein air painting group going in Penticton at the end of May 2012.  We began meeting in the spring and usually 4-6 of us headed out all over the south Okanagan on Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons.  We will start up again in June when I return from China.   The group was a tremendous success.  We met many wonderful local artists as well as out of town visitors who joined our outings, meeting artists from across Canada.  Several keeners became regulars and we had a strong core group with Nel Witteman, Barb Hillier, Anne Allison,  Kris Raftopoulos and myself.  Artists of all ages are always welcomed.

After my terriffic journey to China in September and October,  I returned to some great autumn plein air painting in the Okanagan w
ith the gang braving the autumn chill by layering up. We painted right up to the bitter end, finishing off with a Christmas paint out aAngie Painting in December at the Dragons Den courtyard Penticton BC Canadat the court yard at the Dragons Den on Front Street.  During the early new year we met to paint at the Open Studio at Shatford Centre.  The group is free but we provided a small donation to the centre for letting us use their open studio space.

Stay tuned for future stories about many of these wonderful journeys!  And, if you have time, why don't you come out and paint with us--it's open to artists of all levels and ages.  Check out the listing on

*Penticton Plein Air Painters will Start Meeting again in June 2013
Tuesdays at 7 AM and Tuesday's at 3 PM
at the Starbucks near Quality Greens  at North End of Penticton BC, Canada.  Everyone is welcome to this free group*.

Artist Angie McIntosh has created a simple rustic painting studio in an old house in Stewart BC which is near some of the most scenic painting locations of Western Canada and  Alaska, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  In the summer of 2008 artists from all around gathered together to paint in this amazing inspiring location and join McIntosh for a painting retreat. Read about the first Bear Festival in 2007. Coming soon will be a post of our painting there in 2009.   It is wonderful to be in the north in the summer and early fall to paint. If you wish to participate next year contact McIntosh .  Remember the wonderful old days when Group of Seven artists inspired each other on painting trips to the Canadian countreyside?  Angie was also inspired by walking through Renoir's home in southern France. The comraderie and inspiration felt and created by the artists who met at Renoir's home must have been amazing.  Seeing the art works left in the rooms by his artist friends who would visit and paint moved her and so she is trying to create a similar environment right here in northern BC.  Click here to learn about joining McIntosh as an artist in residence at her art retreat in Stewart, BC, in northern Canada, minutes from Alaska.  Please note that the Art Retreat of the North is not available for commercial rental or as a B&B--it is Angie's place of art and creativity.  If you wish to work there or join other artists there you must contact Angie first.  Email or phone in Canada 250 809-7932.
