Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Rail Station in the Rain

“Painting outdoors requires that you often work rapidly and simplify. It’s a natural training ground for working more loosely. With watercolor, the initial drawing is critical, especially if the subject is a complicated one. Then, when the brush hits the paper, I am able to express myself more loosely as the painting develops.”
— Michael Holter, “Letting Loose”
