    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

    Detail in Big Strokes

    This painting shows amazing detail (color, texture) within such beautiful loose brushstrokes. I love it!

    A Flowery Village

    This fanciful, flower lined village reminds me of a visit to Epcot Center in Florida a few years ago.

    Mangrove Roots

    A view of colorful underwater roots ordinarily hidden from sight takes on an abstract quality and I feel the rhythm created by the repeating shapes, patterns, colors and textures.

    From a Memory

    Can't you remember driving down this road? The artist creates that strong sense of such a memory with washes, few strokes and low value colors in a landscape painting that relies on keen attention to perspective drawing.
