6x6 inch original plein air
oil painting by Tom Brown
Claude Monet explored the “series” concept in his haystacks, water lily paintings and other themes.
Any subject can be more fully explored in a series than in a single painting. Everything from the grand view to intimate details can be examined.
Series paintings allow creativity to become more fully expressed. That was the purpose behind this series of plein air paintings featuring the famous coastal landmark “Keyhole Rock” in Southern California.
A colorful sky was featured in one, while the ocean was emphasized in the next. Yet another included some foreground elements while the final painting took a more intimate look at the “keyhole” shape in the cliff as beachgoers climbed the rocks and walked through the keyhole.
All four paintings were done completely on location. Watch my blog to see each of these featured over the next few days. As always, comments are welcome.
Thanks for looking.
