Troy Kilgore is from Bloomington, Indiana. He has been painting in oils for 15 years, and his experience shows in his ability to use generous amounts of color while still maintaining beautiful color harmonies. He is also adept at depicting light, which he attributes not only to experience, but also to using a split primary palette composed of both warm and cool colors. He credits his long-time study "en plein air" for the success of his studio work. His paintings have been accepted into American Impressionist Society and Oil Painters of America National and Salon Shows. Troy was featured in the July 2017 issue of Plein Air Magazine.
