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: “Through the Trees”

“For the most part, I like to finish my plein air paintings completely on location, which means I often paint in multiple sessions, usually five to seven. But I also do some plein air paintings to use in the studio as reference. They’re really two different types of work.

“I highly recommend working from memory also. Actually we do a lot of that in plein air without even realizing it. You can see how painters like Bonnard and Vuillard used it and visualize where it can take your own art. Anything that helps you realize your artistic vision is a good thing. The key is to experiment.”
