Description This lovely sunset was stunning with the golds and violets in the clouds. I stopped to quickly rough in the color and finished the sunset in studio. I painted this in Plein Air in an impressionistic style similar to the French Impressionists.
Kevin McCain, Mesa Member Since June 2011 Artist Statement I am a professional artist and children's book illustrator. In my paintings I use vibrant colors and thick impasto to give my paintings a life and vitality that capture the viewer’s attention. I strive for a dreamy quality to my paintings. To make them more reminiscent of memories rather than an illustration of a particular scene. The impression of the landscape is more important than the actual content.
