URBAN PLEIN AIR STUDY by TOM BROWN

Click HERE.
We have a tendency to overlook the commonplace that surrounds us on a daily basis. I wanted to bring out the beauty I saw in this quiet neighborhood street scene. It is a very complex subject and my goal with this study was to simplify it while remaining true to the subject. This was done only as an exploratory study, but it turned out so well I realized that it truly deserves to be displayed in a quality frame so I’m offering it HERE.

CALIFORNIA PLEIN AIR PAINTING by TOM BROWN

$50 – Click HERE. Once again I began with a quick thumbnail sketch before picking up a brush. If there’s any interest, let me hear from you and I may be able to post a video on how I use this approach.

PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP DEMONSTRATION PAINTING by TOM BROWN

$50 – Click HERE. I painted this 5x7 oil painting at a Nature Preserve, while teaching a plein air workshop for other artists. I’m also showing the preliminary sketches I did as part of the demonstration. Sketches like this take only moments, and they help clarify the compositional elements prior to picking up a brush.
