SUNSET SKY and VIDEO PREVIEW by TOM BROWN
CLICK HERE for a preview of my Video on Painting Dazzling Sunset Skies
In my video I demonstrate the same fun and simple shortcuts I have been teaching for years in my sold-out workshops for other artists. For example the five critical keys that are almost guaranteed to make every painting a "keeper!" They can make all the difference. And I even include a gallery of other dramatic sunset paintings to keep you inspired. Click the link above to watch a preview.

CALIFORNIA COASTAL LANDSCAPE by TOM BROWN
The California Coast is an artist’s delight. It always has something new and fresh to offer. Something that may never be seen again. Sometimes the magic in a scene results from momentary lighting conditions, sometimes from the time of day or simply a different vantage point from which to paint. I’ve often returned to a specific location again and again, and every time it’s different. I was particularly pleased with this painting. I hope you enjoy it too. Thanks for stopping to look.
This painting is one of a kind, and when it's gone, it's gone! Don't let this one get away!

NUDE WOMAN, FIGURATIVE PAINTING by TOM BROWN
I began with a number of quick gesture sketches to establish the pose I would use for this painting. And I thought it would be interesting to show a photo here of the sketch I liked best. I’ve always enjoyed painting and sketching the figure and I was pleased with this particular painting.
I'm also showing the initial stage of the monochromatic block-in as I began the actual painting. I felt it may be interesting for other artists to see how this one began. Enjoy! This painting is one of a kind, and when it's gone, it's gone! Don't let this one get away!
