HOW I CHOOSE WHAT TO PAINT by TOM BROWN

CLICK HERE for this Original Plein Air Oil Painting on a 5x7 Inch Masonite (mdf) Panel.
I’m often asked how I choose what to paint. Many things can influence my choice. The colors within a scene like this for example.
     And the sense of drama because of the scale (the sprawling mountains contrasted with the palm trees in the foreground).
     Or it might be a mood, or a sense of mystery or story suggested by the subject. Or it could simply be something pretty that catches my eye.
     When that happens I go for it. In fact some pictures almost paint themselves; I just grab the brush and go along for the ride.
     That's what happened here and it was great fun. I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed painting it.
     If you have questions or comments I’d love to hear from you; email me here: tombrownstudio@cox.net
