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 Colors

“There are just so many looks you can achieve in terms of paint quality and flavor with acrylics, and there are endless mediums, and combinations of mediums, to try with them. Each medium yields a different result, from super heavy impasto to transparent glazing. I think artists should always branch out and try new approaches — this is what keeps us fresh, and that quality will show in our work.”
— Don Bishop, “Why Acrylic Is Perfect for Plein Air”
