The Landscape Paintings of Richard McKinley PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Landscape Paintings of Richard McKinley free pdf The Landscape Paintings of Richard McKinley invites you to experience the artist's life work and lessons learned. In this impressive yet intimate collection of 100 breathtaking pastel and oil landscape paintings, McKinley takes you along as he tackles his favorite subjects--the the vistas of the Pacific Northwest, the California coastline, fall in Taos, New Mexico, and many others--while sharing the anecdotes, techniques and feelings behind each work. This volume is, in essence, three books in one: * A salute to the beauty of our earth. Scenes (many completed en plein air) range from McKinley's home state of Oregon, to the arid deserts of Arizona, to Minnesota's lakes and France's Provence region. * The personal journey of one artist. His walks through the woods. His race with light. The people and places that have inspired him along the way. * The landscape-painting workshop of a lifetime. It's packed with expert insights on everything from working on location and the importance of preparatory sketches, to using underpainting, capturing light effects, and knowing when to stop. A compelling read for artists and art-lovers alike, every page resonates with McKinley's love of his craft, lifetime of know-how and knack for helping other artists discover their own original views of the world.
