An award winning oil painter, author and professional artist since 1972, Tom Browning has mastered a wide-ranging variety of mediums and subjects over his successful art career. A slice of Tom's philosophy on painting and the importance of capturing light effectively: "It’s what makes or breaks a painting. It’s all about the light. It doesn’t matter what the subject is or what the particular light source is, it’s all about the light. I should clarify by explaining there are many more aspects of a painting, such as design, color, drawing, and even brushwork. All of these are important. But for me, if there isn’t a convincing source of light, it doesn’t seem to work for me. And there are a lot of different types of lighting situations. Full sunlight, diffused light, back light, and even practically no light. But whatever the lighting situation is, that’s usually one of the main things I try to capture."
