Peter Brown




I would like to thank Adebanji for his generous permission to reference an amazing photo that he took of his friend and mentor, English artist extraordinaire Peter Brown. You can see the photo on Adebanji's blog. I was not familiar with Mr. Brown's work until reading about him in Adebanji's blog, and now I find myself studying and admiring his amazing paintings. The beautiful clean strokes are nothing short of genius in their precision, economy and brilliant colour. What can I say...huge new fan here. So here he is doing what he makes look so effortless. We can only wish.

  2. Well, I cannot make up my mind which part I love most since this entire painting is executed with finesse. I do like the arm holding the palette, the entire easel set up is marvelous. Need I go on? Bravo, Vern.

  3. GREAT PIECE! I love it and I'll forward it to Pete too, I'm sure he'll love it too!
    You really captured the light and most especially his Coat- you need to see it in real life-it's an exhibit with textured paint!

  4. What a beauty! I'm with Cathann...I can't pick a favorite part because the entire composition is so well done. If I HAD to choose I would say the easel and that wonderful splash of red. Great job, Vern!
