Description The Impressionistic sunset was painted in Plein Air on the Deserts of Eastern Mesa. The Saguaro Forests are stunning at sunset. I was fortunate to see this sky after painting in the Superstition Mountains. I quickly set up my equipment and painted this as the light slowly faded. I am glad I was able to capture this on my canvas.
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.
