Description The Impressionist Plein Painting captures the violets and oranges of the Sunset as the sun fades and night approaches. Done with direct strokes and thick paint application the painting captures the impression of color and value. The Fading warmth of the Day is captured as the oranges fade into light violet of the approaching night.
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.
