Sneary Headshot From Website1


An architect and renowned architectural illustrator, Richard Sneary has over the last 3 years also begun painting en Plein air in watercolor. His background as an architect/illustrator of architecture often compels him to include something of the built environment, whether it’s a town square, back yards, an alley, old derelict structure, marina, trains, bridges, and industrial structure, or fence posts on a farm.

Like many artists, Richard is drawn to subjects by light and color, but also by the sense of place, its character, and the story he sees in it, and it is the juxtaposition of light, color, contrast, form, abstraction, and detail that make the stories work.

Richard is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society and Missouri Watercolor Society, a member of the American Watercolor Society, and a member of the Missouri Valley Impressionist Society.
