In this weekly series Kelly Kane, Editor-in-Chief of Plein Air Magazine, shares a favorite painting from the current issue.

Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Fireweed

“Sometimes there’s just one of those paintings that really works, and this was one. It was a natural — the red of the fireweed against the green. I first created an underpainting of variegated greens and browns and then painted over it with opaque, lighter greens. Often, I’ll put thick paint on with an offset painting knife, then brush into it.” ~ Peggy Immel, “Path to Success”
