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: Spring Clouds Over the Pier
“When used outdoors, acrylics behave more like watercolor than oil, as far as logistics and process are concerned. You can lay down a toned ground and allow it to dry quickly before painting, and passages that need to be modified may be painted over opaquely with a dry brush or palette knife almost immediately. And since the diluent for acrylic is water, you can paint just about anywhere you have access — an advantage over having to arrange for Gamsol while traveling, plus it’s free.”
— Rick J. Delanty, “Why Acrylic Is Perfect for Plein Air”
