TOM BROWN CALIFORNIA IMPRESSIONIST PLEIN AIR OCEAN SURF




"5 O’CLOCK SHADOW"
6x8 INCH ORIGINAL PLEIN AIR
OIL PAINTING BY TOM BROWN

I almost named this one “RUSH HOUR” because at this time of day if you can’t paint swiftly and with conviction, it’s best to pull over and just watch the view fade away. Sunset is no time for beginning painters. The light and colors change so quickly that you either capture them fast or miss them forever.

I think I got it! This one is loaded with rich, juicy strokes of delicious oil paints that bring interesting color and texture to the painting’s surface. Have a look at the detail images and let me know what you think.

By the way, this is a scene of Laguna Beach, with the golden cliffs and palm trees looking over the stunning Pacific Ocean. Laguna Beach has been an artist’s colony since the time of the Early California Impressionists because of the unique light and color created by the land and sea.

I’m one of the very lucky few who live nearby and can witness this sort of dramatic view on a regular basis. Better yet, I get to paint it right from nature on location as it happens. Enjoy the view.
