    Description

    High in the Mountains in early June I was hiking with a mission find the most beautiful little grove of Aspens I could find. I came over a small ridge and there they were in the shallow valley below. I hike down and into the small glen of trees. The light had just burned through the light cloud cover and illuminated the area with an intense yellow light. I quickly made sketches and notes to capture the scene. After taking a couple of photographs I made a small painted study, from this the larger studio painting was created. This painting is done in oil using impressionist colors and very direct brushwork. This painting is original and one of a kind and will make a wonderful addition to your collection.

    This painting is inspired by the California Impressionist painters like Guy Rose and others. The painting is painted on cotton triple primed canvas with professional grade oil paint. The canvas is stretched on 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" professional wooden stretcher bars. The painting will be delivered in an enforced cardboard box crate with high-density foam for protection. The price of the painting includes the shipping. Contact me with any questions about the painting artist@kevinmccainart.com

    The artist's description of this scene caused me to look further at the tiny details in the background. The dots of paint which loosely define the buildings are so thoughtful and intriguing. This is a fantastic work of art!

    Between Shadows and Light

    Beautiful Composition, Color and Light

    This painting stands out for it's carefully nuanced effects, excellent use of line (drawing), and values, and flowing, balanced composition. Upon first look, however, the technical reasons for this painting's success are far from my mind; I'm drawn into the story and imagine the plaintive vibrato of the widower's violin.
