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.
