Cloudy Skies and Prairie Fields Landscape Painting by Contemporary Canadian Artist Melissa McKinnon

Light… Modern… Peaceful… are the words that come to mind when I look at this painting.

In this painting, the landscape has been interpreted in a fresh contemporary style using a combination of soft, subtle brushwork contrasted with thick, impasto texture, creating a work of art that can be felt with your hands as well as your heart.

“Soft Summer Light” (Detail) 48″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

Growing up in Alberta, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, endless rural prairie fields and wide open, constantly changing sky has instilled within me, a deep appreciation of nature and the beauty that surrounds us. I believe that beauty is in the details – be it a stunning sunset sky full of vibrant colour or the tiniest prairie flower reaching for the sun in a sea of grassy field – all we have to do is pause for a moment and look. The beautiful colours and textures of the landscape have become a huge inspiration in my artwork and my aim is to show you that beauty in a new way.

Painting LIVE in Banff, Alberta – A Prairie Inspired Landscape Painting With Colourful Cloudy Sky After a Storm

Painting LIVE in Banff!

The finished painting ‘From Darkness Into Light’ 36″x24″

Our intent was to convey the feelings of a person transitioning from the darkness of disease into health and light. The inspiration was a beautiful prairie landscape featuring a big cloudy sky. You can see the dark, tumultuous storm clouds on the left and how they begin to transition into glowing sun lit clouds.

Although the painting “From darkness into Light” has been purchased by the medical company who hired me, it became a study for a larger painting which I created afterward in my studio.

The billowing clouds and soft light give this painting a dramatic and beautiful atmosphere. The impasto brush strokes capture the feeling of movement and light felt when you are outdoors in the fresh air after a summer storm.

“Beneath the Surface” 36″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

This painting was inspired by the beautiful Canadian prairie landscape.

Looking west from my studio, this is the view I see everyday. A big, bold Alberta sky and vast prairie fields leading toward the majestic Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park.

I could spend my lifetime painting this landscape and never paint the same image twice. The colours and textures of the landscape change with the quality of light from the sky and the sky changes by the minute.

It’s gloriously beautiful!

SOLD! On It’s Way To Newport Beach California “From Here I Can Go Anywhere” 48″x36″ Colourful Prairie Landscape Painting by Canadian Artist Melissa McKinnon

SOLD!

Tomorrow this painting will be packaged with care and sent to it’s new home in Newport Beach, California!

My newest landscape painting was inspired by the big skies and open prairies of western Canada.

The sunrises and sunsets that we see in Calgary are incredibly stunning. The sky is so big and full of colour that it often feels like you are engulfed inside of it. I can’t help but stand in awe of the beautiful, rapidly changing shapes and colours. It’s breathtaking.

This painting is big, colourful, optimistic and definitely makes a statement!

There are magical moments hiding in every painting, you just have to explore and find them.

In this painting, the spontaneous burst of pink emerging from behind the cluster of clouds is my favourite magical moment of the entire piece. It could be a painting all on it’s own.
