In this weekly series Kelly Kane, Editor-in-Chief of Plein Air Magazine, shares a favorite painting and artist quote from a recent issue.

Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Barn at Walking R Ranch

“The more I painted en plein air, the more important the opacity and quick-drying qualities of acrylic became to me. In fact, the medium has become an integral part of how I compose — plunging right in, using my big brush like a saber, bringing to life large, bold subjects with absolutely no need for the careful planning that can turn a painting session into a bore. And when the piece is done, it’s dry. There’s no need to worry about staining my car’s interior or accidentally smearing the painting surface.”
—Marcia Burtt, “Why Acrylic Is Perfect for Plein Air”
