Kevin Machpherson, "Tug," oil, 16 x 20 in.

Kevin Macpherson lived the dream of taking his art all over the world and teaching along the way. Today Macpherson works from Taos, New Mexico, (although he has a second home in Baja). As you’ll learn in this PleinAir Podcast, Macpherson often travels to China, where representational, Western styles of painting are relatively new. Throughout his career, he has traveled to more than 35 countries.

Macpherson got his start as an illustrator, work he did for eight years. He also talks about how, after years away from the subject, he has recently made a return to painting portraits.
