Book Description:
Thomas Kinkade is the most popular and widely collected artist of our time. Beloved for his light filled quaint country cottages, majestic mountain vistas, and nostalgic depictions of the American small town, Kinkade is also a master of plein air painting painting outdoors in natural light. Rooted in traditional, 19th century American and European landscape painting, plein air is dependent upon the whims of the natural world. Brushstrokes are more visible and possess the fluid, painterly quality that is a hallmark of the plein air style a quality often associated with French Impressionism. The Artist in Nature: Thomas Kinkade and the Plein Air Tradition is the first book to showcase this celebrated artist's spectacular plein air works. First, readers will discover the fascinating history of the plein air tradition, followed by an insightful biographical essay that explores Kinkade's personal, artistic, and spiritual developments as they relate to his approach to painting in nature. Next, an entire section focuses on the challenges involved when painting seascapes, mountains, deserts, buildings, and foreign locations along with his step by step demonstrations for painting a Cotswold cottage scene and an exotic location in Greece. Finally, art lovers will be treated to a full color gallery of Kinkade's finest plein air paintings, all accompanied by personal insights from the artist.
