Ambassador of the Week: Tom Brown

Meet Tom Brown, this week’s top American Watercolor Weekly Ambassador!

I am primarily a landscape painter with an impressionist style. I am drawn to rural scenes, always looking for the mood and emotion. I ask myself, ‘what is the real story here, how can I convey it to the viewer.’ I’ve been painting now for a little over a decade.

“Passage to Capulin”
Passage to Capulin depicts a dilapidated ranch in northeastern New Mexico. The mountain in the background is The Capulin Volcano National Monument.
“This farm in eastern Iowa begged to be painted. The light and the mood were irresistible. Heartland is one of my favorites and was juried into The Western Federation of Watercolor Society’s 2018 members show.
“Missouri Stop”
“The subject of Missouri Stop is an old train stop near Joplin, Missouri. The clouds were quite dramatic that day and added to the feel of this scene.

  1. Kelly, Thank you for running my story a second time. It’s always exciting and cool to get a little exposure, especially in a top shelf publication as this one. I appreciate all you guys do to promote artists and art related stories. If ever the opportunity comes up again I hope I can have some of my more recent works added as well. You know, we artists are always evolving.

    Thank you again,
    Tom Brown
