His guidance as president of Plein Air Painters of America literally paved the way for an important art movement in our country today.

Macpherson produced instructional videos about his artistic process, more importantly he has co-produced, directed, written, worked on both sides of the video camera and was a featured artist on the 13-episode art program aired on American Public Television. "Passport and Palette", has documented a select group of artists painting on location in many fascinating places in the world. The artists share their vision and methods in the universal language of art,www.passportandpalette.com.

Kevin has mentored aspiring artists in over a dozen countries. He loves to travel and share his art enthusiasm offering enlightened talks and inspiring educational experiences. The past five years he has brought artists groups to China and has explored China on his own immersing himself for months at a time in the rural countryside villages and large cities. Kevin is studying Mandarin and the written language.

Macpherson has been honored to exhibit with China's, "Creative Cities" exhibition recently held at the 2012 London Olympics. He also has been a guest of the Chinese Realists Painters of China to explore and paint in the province of Xinjiang, culminating in an impressive exhibition, "Affection of the Motherland" that has traveled to the major museums in Shanghai, Beijing, Urumuqi, Hong Kong and beyond.

IN MACPHERSON'S WORDS

My earliest memory is drawing on my grandfather¿s porcelain kitchen table. He taught me how to draw rabbits and turtles and would magically wipe the pencil marks off without ruining the table or getting in trouble. My childhood was focused on art, drawing, painting and modeling clay. I was always the best artist in my class however I never had someone to guide me into what a career as an artist may be.

Although art was the center of my life and I knew I would be a professional artist by the time I was seven I never had formal training until enrolled in Northern Arizona University. Fortunately majoring in illustration introduced me to wonderful instructor named Chris Magadini. He was an inspiring instructor that encouraged the best from his students. He became my first mentor and we remain friends and painting peers to this day.

My schooling and my eight years as a freelance illustrator were an excellent foundation for a fine artist. The demanding advertising field honed the skills that continue to influence my paintings. I continued my studies with many fine artists at the Scottsdale Artist's School. There my eyes were awakened to the new world of painting on location. The countless hours painting from life, directly observing nature and color taught me truly how to see as an artist.

This new unexpected path to improve my illustration skills changes my life in a big way. Although life as an illustrator was energizing and rewarding becoming a plein air artist represented in fine art galleries was icing on the cake. My second mentor was the landscape itself. Nature has all the truthful answers if we only ask many questions.

I have traveled most the world. New places and faces have inspired my work. Fresh locations keep my senses at their highest level. For the plein air artist travel is a perfect companion. I spend months at a time, away from home, painting every day and visiting museums and experiencing the lifestyle of many different cultures. Art is a universal language that opens many doors in every place I go. What inspire me are color, light and atmospheric effects. I actually do not know what the next motif will be. I must always be on call and be aware of my surroundings and accept the many opportunities that nature puts before me.

I live in a beautiful rural area high in the mountains east of Taos, New Mexico surrounded by pines, aspens and wild animals. The changing seasons have inspired many of my paintings including my series of 368 paintings titled, "Reflections on a Pond". This series really sums up what my painting is all about. Not so much about a beautiful subject out my window but the ever-changing light and atmosphere and compositional opportunities that nature puts forth.

Recent travels to Asia have surprisingly shifted some of my gears. I went as a landscape painter but I was so inspired by the people and faces of China I began painting portraits and figurative works. I find this subject very challenging. An artist must go with inspiration wherever that leads. It takes years to master the skills necessary to communicate inspiring works of art. It is dangerous to become complacent repeating one's success. Perhaps an artist may produce a satisfying product but it is not satisfying to repeat formulas from previous paintings. It is interesting that we work so hard to figure out, "how to do it", but when we reach that place of knowing most artists I admire will raise the bar and find new challenges. Searching for the unknown is what motivates true artists.

If I were to offer advice to an aspiring artist I would say find some good training to own the basic skills. Find the right schools, the right mentors and workshops. Dedicate the hours and years necessary to master the principles and foundations. With the right guidance from a giving mentor or instructor you will save much time in your advancement. The desire and need to paint for yourself is more important than any great teacher for they can guide you and inspire you but if you're not self-motivated one will never reach full potential. There may be many obstacles and discouragement along the way but if a person follows their dream the life as an artist will never feel like work.

Visit museums, galleries and peruse books to find many artists, abstract and representational, which touch you and perhaps have a similar art vocabulary to confirm your own voice. In fact finding your "own voice" trusting and believing in yourself and what you have to offer is most important. There are many good artists available to look at, to compare and persuade you to copy their methods. All the great masters were humans and yes they are great and we put them on a pedestal but each of you have something worthy and unique to say. Believe in yourself. If you had the choice to paint like any artist in the world? There is really only one answer that is Y O U.


The nature of plein air painting forces an artist to paint at a speed that for many is very uncomfortable. I actually thrive on this anxiety state of mind. My skills must be in tune but secondary to my intuition for the impassion race against the fleeting effects of nature.

My simple palette; Alizarin Red, Cadmium Yellow Light, Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White has served me well. I mix all the color relationships necessary with these three primaries and white. This limited palette is very liberating.

I profess create the big picture first; the biggest simplified shapes as the most important representation of light and shadow. Each of the major shapes that best represent the simplified concept of your painting must be related properly before one worries about the insignificant shifts in temperature and value. If the big picture, major shapes, are not related properly all the detail and all the modeling one does will be incorrect and will be a waste of the artist's time. Start with the lightest light and the darkest dark. These two notes of color and value will set the high and low parameters to guide all other comparisons. Next relate all the colors in the shadow family. Use this simple method to infuse light and color into paintings. Each day each moment will require different combinations and different relationships of value and color. Observe directly and carefully for these relationships make each painting unique. When all color and values are related properly, all shapes and proportions properly placed and there are no more corrections necessary this is when I know my painting is completed.
