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: Bowers Harbor

“When painting plein air with pastels, setup is as simple as opening my paint box — no need to squeeze out a lot of paint or mix colors. The paper and boards I use are thin and lightweight, as well, making it easy for me to bring a variety when I travel. Outdoors, pastels perfectly capture different light conditions. Applying them lightly, I can softly merge one color with others or, by altering the pressure I place on the stick, create energetic strokes with bravado.”
— Jill Stefani Wagner, “Why Pastel Is Perfect for Plein Air”
