My impression of a beautiful evening in the town of Newburgh, Scotland, when the sun set at 11pm and the sky retained some light all night long.  My palette is inspired by the blues and yellows of Provence.  The four  boats were lined up just like this, creating a composition that was begging to be painted.  The distant hills, the charming village and the retaining walls are all loosely suggested to be realistic without a lot of detail.

Getting to Know Mandy

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.
