MY FIRST PLEIN AIR PAINTING OF THE NEW YEAR by TOM BROWN

5x7 INCH OIL PAINTING ON MASONITE PANEL

On New Year's Morning I always enjoy getting out bright and early to create a Plein Air painting on location. This is my first painting of 2015, created on-site at a scenic location near my home in Southern California.

I am also showing a photo here that was taken as I painted this. I thought it might be interesting for other artists to see how I used my artistic license when creating this painting.

You will notice that I left out the newly-planted saplings along this walking path, as well as lamp posts. I felt these things didn't contribute anything to the scene and so I chose to leave them out. What an artist leaves OUT of a painting can be as important as what he or she includes.

As I painted this I was greeted by a number of early-bird walkers and joggers passing by. Often they would stay to watch awhile or make a comment about the inspirational setting. I like it when passersby stop to chat, and it always brightens my day.

This was a wonderful way to begin the New Year! Thanks for stopping to look, and I wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
