Contemporary impressionistic landscape with atmospheric perspective that pulls the eye into the painting and creates drama. Radiating crop lines point toward the very low horizon and the uplifting burst of light Below a fiery sky. Cool blue tones of the distant hills provide a pleasing contrast to the warm orange, ochre and olive green palette.  Applying paint with palette and putty knives creates texture and movement.  An abstracted view of nature gives a modern feel to a traditional subject. 

Mandy Main

Rancho Mirage, California

Mandy Main is an art historian and landscape painter based in the Southern California desert. She has long been passionate about 19th Century American landscape paintings, which has been influential in her artistic practice. Mandy works in series, generally three paintings at a time. Her process begins with a vision of a place she has been, but she takes creative liberties with the aesthetic details. The artist is captivated by light and shadow, and strives to instill her work with moody drama through the representation of these elements. Using layers of paint and glazes, Mandy achieves mesmerizing atmospheric depth, encouraging the viewer to gaze and be still.

Mandy, my favorites are all of your paintings that are almost all cloud and sky, and just a little of the landscape. I'm not an art person, but I really love your paintings. Thanks

Thanks Sanjeev. The paintings are series of layers, some applied with brush, some with knives, and some with ragged on washes of color.

I have seen few of your works. When you play with yellow tones, you do it best Mandy!!

Being a learning raw artist myself, I liked the texture that is created in luminosity. Is it just through the brush that various shades of yellow are done? I am asking myself. Really interesting!!

Nice work Mandy. I particularly enjoy Halcyon. Reminds me of the days of my youth, studying the beautiful cloud formations and dreaming of what was to come.

D Sherry Boggins 1/29/2012 | 1:05 AM

Beautiful work. Reminds me of Turner. Sensational use of color. Intriguing subject matter A real future for Main. Watch her grow. Very collectable!
