AN ARTIST’S SNAPSHOT BY TOM BROWN



“THE ARTIST’S SNAPSHOT”
4.5x2.5 inch original palette knife
oil painting study by Tom Brown


A picnic table beneath a sheltering tree offered charming material for a beautiful painting.

But time was short. I had only a few minutes; no time for a full-blown painting.

The solution: I whipped out my pochade box and palette knife. Bam! In minutes I had captured the essence of the scene in an “oil painting snapshot.”

I’m including a photo taken while I was there. The photo records the truth of the scene, but my little oil study records the FEELING I wanted to communicate. It’s tiny, but it packs a wallop.

Beautiful, Tom, it really does pack a whollop. I have to tell you, I liked it way better after seeing your ref photo. Thanks so much for including it!
