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: “Beneath Kilea Cone”

“When I go out painting, composition is often third or fourth on my list of priorities. I’m not ignoring composition, but I’m looking to capture atmosphere, significant details, and the overall idea of the painting. I’m after a broader sense of what I’m thinking, and I’m gathering that information for the study.”
— Dave Santillanes (“Gathering in the Field”)
