Kyle Buckland is a plein air landscape painter living in the rural Appalachian region of south western Virginia. His understanding of the complex philosophies regarding impressionism and his ability to capture sunlight and colored atmosphere is uncanny for an artist of his age. As a self taught painter, Buckland has worked with oils since he was sixteen years old, stretching and priming his canvases and hauling his gear out into the surrounding fields and woods, never concerned with whether the temperature was 10 degrees or if it was a languid summer day. Each trip, to him, was an opportunity to capture something new. In these seasonal excursions spanning twelve years Kyle, who is now 28 figures he has completed over One Thousand paintings of the Appalachian landscape, many now in private and corporate collections around the country. These works are a culmination of the painterly skills this young artist has developed during his time observing these mountains and their valleys. No serious collector should overlook the raw talent nor the passion revealed in these oils. Virginia.

His responded, “ I always find it hard to verbalize the reason why I paint certain subjects. Kate was appealing to me, her dark eyes and the look on her face captivated my artistic sensibilities ... she seemed mysterious and I liked that about her... I’d rather paint someone I don’t know much about than, say a close family member.”
