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.
