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: Twisted Tree Trail

“The thing I love about plein air painting is that you only have two to three hours before the light changes too much; there’s a specific speed required for painting this way that works for me. If I work too fast, I tend to paint too thickly and can ruin my painting. If I paint too slowly, I tend to put in too much detail and end up doodling and overworking things, thus destroying the spontaneity and immediacy of the response I cherish.” — Jim Wodark, “Design Makes the Difference”
