An atmospheric landscape of a road rising up through a soft focus countryside. The scarlet road provides a vivid contrast against the palette of olive, greens and ochres. The eye moves around the composition, lead by the road and the rising mist at its end, the swelling warm light at the horizon and the ochre highlights radiating through the fields. The horizontal format lends a sense of calm while the road and the lively brushwork add movement and intrigue.
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.
