ONE DOLLAR AUCTION, 6x8 PLEIN AIR STUDY by TOM BROWN


I painted this preliminary study on location before tackling a larger canvas of the same subject. I sometimes do this when painting outdoors to “lock in” the light and colors of the scene before conditions can change.

I then used this as a guide to keep me on track as I created the larger canvas. Both paintings were done on location the same day.

This is an original oil painting on canvas, and I have decided to put it on eBay with a starting bid of just ONE DOLLAR. This is a three-day auction ending on Friday at 1:13pm.

An interesting note: In the foreground of this study you can see some golden-white homes among the trees. In the larger painting I decided to omit the homes. I also changed the sky of the larger painting to include enormous billowing white clouds.

PS: The FREE PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP that I had planned to conduct this weekend has been moved to the following weekend on Saturday morning, January 28. Stay tuned for more details.

Thanks for looking.
