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: Nikolas’ Garden Shed

“I believe you have 100 bad paintings in you when you begin. You just have to put your head down and do the work. Figure out what you don’t know, because you need the right questions to get the right answers. Then find a good workshop or attend a conference. Oh, and draw cars! A car has everything —the curves of a figure, perspective lines — and you know instantly if you got it right.”
— Nancy Takaichi, “11 Artists to Collect Now: The Emerging Plein Air Painters You Need to Know”
