Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: The Cotton Gin

“I always start with the same questions. What is this painting about, and where is my center of interest? Once I realized how important having a ‘point’ to your plein air painting is, everything started to make sense, because now I can efficiently prioritize my time. Everything is a supporting act to the focal point, and time should be spent accordingly.”
