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: “The Well, Elba”

“For me, watercolor’s natural relation to water encourages a deep connection to the landscape. I especially love to use watercolor for seascapes and marina paintings because of its ability to mimic the transparency of water. I also feel that watercolor is strongly related to drawing, so I prefer it for scenes that suggest a graphic approach, such as urban scenes.”
— Francesco Fontana
