CALIFORNIA IMPRESSIONIST PLEIN AIR PAINTING BY TOM BROWN




CALIFORNIA IMPRESSIONIST PLEIN AIR PAINTING

“FIVE O’CLOCK SHADOW”

Plein Air Study by Tom Brown

To purchase this painting, email me at tombrownstudio@cox.net.

When painting on location I sometimes use quick unfinished studies like this to capture the fleeting effects of light and color in a few bold strokes. An example here is the golden sunlight on the billowing clouds, and the pale gray-lavender color of the distant mountains.

These studies are like little jewels that sparkle with life, and I often frame them in this unfinished state. Click on the “detail” image for a better view.

If you would like to try your hand at plein air painting but can’t attend my live workshops, my new “PLEIN AIR QUICK-START PACKAGE” will get you started on the right path. It includes videos from my TV shows and much more. Plus I have a series of e-books on CDs. They also make unique Holiday gifts for your artist friends! Email me for details: tombrownstudio@cox.net.

Thanks for stopping to look.

Today’s happy thought:
The end of a perfect day
