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: Every Shade of White

“Squinting at your subject is always important, but for high-key scenes, it’s imperative. Squint to see the correct value, then open your eyes fully to examine the color. Even tiny additions to titanium white can make a huge difference in value, so add color carefully, as I had to do here. Also, step back from your easel occasionally to view the scene and your painting in one glance and better assess your progress.” — Kathleen Dunphy, The Unlimited Possibilities of a Limited Palette
