CALIFORNIA IMPRESSIONIST PLEIN AIR by TOM BROWN

CLICK HERE to bid on this 7x5-inch oil painting and my $1 auctions.
     Paintings that are created outdoors directly from the inspiration of nature are like bringing a breath of fresh air and sunshine into your home.
     And painting outdoors is exhilarating. I tell my plein air students to look for the magic and keep it simple. And that’s what I did here.
     My principle goal was to capture the energy and excitement I felt. I used thick, juicy strokes of rich colorful oil paints to create additional interest and texture on the surface of the painting as I worked.
     And my favorite pochade box helped too. It set up instantly so I could dive right in when I spotted this. No wasted effort; it’s light, travels easily, and safely carries my painting and palette of wet paints. I was already painting within the first few minutes.
     HERE’S a link to full details about my pochade box. Questions or comments? Email me at tombrownstudio@cox.net  Thanks for looking.
