BISON, AMERICAN BUFFALO by TOM BROWN

“BIG CHIEF BUFFALO NICKEL”
CLICK HERE for this auction

While painting this I was listening to Leon Redbone’s “Big Chief Buffalo Nickel” and couldn’t resist using that as the title.
     Recently I painted Old Faithful at Yellowstone National Park, and in that painting I included some of the Bison that roam freely there. As preparation for that painting I did a number of studies of those magnificent animals, and in the process I developed a greater interest in painting them.
     This is a recent painting that resulted from that newfound interest. I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed painting it.

RAIN ON WINDOW by TOM BROWN

CLICK HERE to bid on my painting
     The other day I posted the painting shown below that I had painted  in the car while it was raining. Here’s another that I actually did first.
     It had just started to rain and I was fascinated by how things looked through the rain-streaked windshield. I quickly grabbed my paint box and did the painting shown above to capture that effect. I liked it so much I did another as the rainstorm increased. That one is now on eBay.

HOW TO PAINT SUNSETS by TOM BROWN

CLICK HERE for this 5x7 inch original oil painting.
     Painting sunsets is an art in itself. There are 5 keys that almost guarantee success, but I’ve noticed that most artists in my workshops aren’t even aware of them. But that’s not all.
     There also needs to be a balance between color that is too subtle and colors that are so garish they don’t look real. But there’s an easy way to control that if you know what to look for and how to do it.
     And that’s why I made a video tutorial on how to paint stunning successful sunsets. You can preview it HERE.
     In my video you’ll learn how to organize and design your compositions with the kind of eye-catching elements that make it stand out. And I demonstrate when, why and how to balance bold, vibrant color with muted desaturated color.
     You’ll see how to balance shapes, masses, movement, accents, flow and positioning of elements including secondary focal points and other often-overlooked things.
     I’ll demonstrate what to look for and how to capture the essence of dramatic sunsets, including how to lead the eye, how to use and maximize color balance and more.
     And as a BONUS this video even includes a gallery of other dramatic sunset paintings to keep you inspired. You can DOWNLOAD IT TODAY and get started right away. Go for it, and HAPPY PAINTING.
