  • 5/9/2017 - Craig Baumgartner - ART CLASS TESTIMONIAL
    Date: 5/5/2017

    I have totally enjoyed the experience of Mark Brown's plein air (painting outside) class. Upon retiring to Oahu I looked for other outside activities in addition to golfing and walking on Kailua beach. After taking watercolor painting and acrylic painting through the Honolulu Museum of Art School, I was introduced to Mark Brown and the plein air journey began. I joined his Saturday morning class and began oil painting at different locations around the island. So in addition to learning how to paint outside with oil paint/easel, we visit the most beautiful sites on the island. It just doesn't get any better than painting at a botanical garden, a historical site, or on a windy, sunny, beach with sand blowing onto your painting. It is so much fun that I also paint outside on Tuesdays and sometimes Thursdays.

    Mark starts his Saturday class with a one-hour demonstration of painting on site. He is a fantastic painter/teacher and inspires and motivates both the novice and experienced painter. His demonstration of technique and nuggets of information are interspersed with a great sense of humor.

    This will be my third year of attending the class and others have taken it even longer. It is not only a class but a gathering of friends and colleagues which make the experience especially rewarding. Many attendees now participate in art shows and sell their paintings. If you want to have fun and a great experience with plein air painting, Mark Brown's class is for you.

  • 5/9/2017 - Robert Dusendschon - ART CLASS TESTIMONIAL
    Date: 5/9/2017

    I have just signed up for Mark Brown's 2017 Summer painting class, and wanted to re-state my gratitude and excitement for being able to continue my on-going education under Mark's knowledgeable and entertaining direction.

    As a returning student (I've lost track of how many years I've been in his class), not only do I continue to learn useful techniques for both acrylic and oil painting (and drawing as well), but I also enjoy hearing about Mark's adventures that he experiences as a dedicated, full-time professional artist.

    His love of Hawaii and his passion for depicting it's beauty and uniqueness is truly inspiring. His enthusiasm is infectious and he has attracted a group of perennial students like myself who have signed up for his classes year after year. I look forward to every class with great anticipation and wouldn't know what to do with myself if I didn't have those Saturday morning plein air painting expeditions.

    Mark has inspired me to try to capture the flavor of Hawaii's people and their history and it is my continuing great pleasure to render some of Hawaii's landmarks in my paintings. I have included a painting of Kewalo Basin's Fisherman's Wharf and Haleiwa's Aoki Shave Ice store (sadly, now both gone). Robert Dusendschon

    Date: 5/8/2017

    I look forward to taking the summer classes.br>
    I was so grateful to be able to participate in the au plain air classes. I have owned several of your paintings and have admired your work for the past 16 years that I have moved to Hawaii. It was such an honor and privilege to have you as a teacher and be in such an inspiring class. It is a dream come true in my retirement. The class is such a positive learning environment and the students are also so supportive. I look forward to learning more with each class. Thanks for the encouragement to pursue my dream.

    Date: 5/6/2017

    Plein air painting is truly painting from life. Living moving changing light could be daunting. Mark Brown makes it doable. He chooses locations and shows how to select a composition. He then demonstrates creating the composition while describing choices in , color, value. Going from student to student He has special ability to know just what information and guidance to give each person as needed in their level. Talented painter, gifted teacher he is kind,caring, respectful and professional. Mark has created an atmosphere of camaraderie and friendship. I have seen tremendous growth in those students who regularly attend Mark's class for he has given them the tools to bring out their individual essence. Mark Brown is a true Hawaii treasure.

  • 4/20/2015 - Use The Mokes To Guide You
    Ref. No.: 23829 ** Price: $600 ** Size: 16" x 20" ** Inspiration: "Use The Mokes To Guide You" was done on a hill top from a great vantage point. I could see all the yellow kayaks paddling away trying to reach the mokes and the wind was doing its best to prevent them. They were using a paddle and all I had was brush, so it was easier for me. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Canoes Of Kuliouou
    Ref. No.: 23830 ** Price: $600 ** Size: 12" x 24" ** Inspiration: "Canoes of Kuliouou" was done during the day,and it's equally good to paint a nocturne here, as the area is quite a ways from a lit area, so the stars and moon are shining. I read how navigator Nainoa Thompson would test out his celestial navigation by putting lights in the parking lot to align the stars, which drew the curious police. But Nainoa being a natural teacher gave them a good learning lesson on navigation. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Red Hibiscus
    Ref. No.: 23831 ** Price: $600 ** Size: 12" x 16" ** Inspiration: Painting "Red Hibiscus" reminded me of how a winning poem of mine in 4th grade won me a Hibiscus plant that my mom, Nancy, cared for and in a short time was transplanted out in the yard and bloomed flowers. Then I learned about caterpillars and butterflies! Awesome. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Na Pali O' Ko'olau
    Ref. No.: 23832 ** Price: $400 ** Size: 11" x 14" ** Inspiration: "Na Pali O' Ko'olau" (The Cliffs of the Ko'olau) was learned to me by doing the winning masthead design for Castle High School that was the title of the school newspaper. The pali is hard to miss but sometimes it's easy to as it gets shrouded in the mist. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Waimea Bay, Hawaii - April 2015
    Ref. No.: 23833 ** Price: $400 ** Size: 11" x 14" ** Inspiration: "Waimea Bay" is probably the smallest version that I have done of this site. Before I used to think that the size of the painting conveyed power, but it has nothing to do with the size. It is being able to lock into the inner strength of a painting, it's mana. In the case of making sure it has strong bones (structure), value and character, I am sure big wave riders can say the same thing about the power of Waimea Bay. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Three Tables At Pupukea 3
    Ref. No.: 23834 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 15" x 30" ** Inspiration: "Three Tables" is an area I liken to the wild North Shore. It has a power to it, but it also has a quiet nature. It's a great place to chill when the other well-known areas are maxed out with people. A good place to paint. - NEW RELEASE

    Ref. No.: 23835 ** Price: $800 ** Size: 16" x 20" ** Inspiration: On the day I painted "Sandy Beach/Blowhole", the spouting waves from the blowhole was going off and even from my distance, I could feel the ebb and flow of the tide from where I stood. It was humbling to feel its power. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Waimanalo, Hawaii - April 2015
    Ref. No.: 23836 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 15" x 30" ** Inspiration: I painted "Waimanalo" when Martin Pahinui was being interviewed about 50 yards in front of me about 2 weeks ago. It was probably for his dad's (Gabby Pops Pahinui) celebration which is today, 4/25/2015. A celebration to honor Gabby at Waimanalo Beach Park with other entertainers. I sometimes sing a song that he liked to sing, "I'm living on easy, with a bottle of whiskey, I have no money to suit my honey." Ahhh the life of an artist! - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Regal Kualoa
    Ref. No.: 23837 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 15" x 30" ** Inspiration: "Regal Kualoa" refers to when in ancient Hawaii, sailing canoes would pass before the mountains of Kualoa and would dip their sales to honor the gods of Kualoa. When I stare at the mountains, I can see why the power was bestowed on them. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Kaaawa Beach, Hawaii
    Ref. No.: 23838 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 15" x 30" ** Inspiration: I painted "Kaaawa Beach" when the neighbor elementary school was having a excursion day there, so there was a lot of excitement in the air. The kids would call out, "Hi Mr. Artist!" - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Hidden Kualoa
    Ref. No.: 23839 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 12" x 36" ** Inspiration: "Hidden Kualoa" was painted on a day when I had a lot of patience. When your painting the grays of the mountain when it's in shadow, then when the light opens the sky and shines on the mountain, it's as if nature was saying to me "Is that all the color you've got?" But its good to keep your cool and droll out a little color at a time, to honor nature and my patience. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Mokuli'i In The Shadow Of The Pali
    Ref. No.: 23840 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 12" x 36" ** Inspiration: As I start painting the B side of the island, I painted "Mokuli'i In The Shadow of the Pali" and was inspired and owe tribute to a great painter, Dennis Morton. He did a similar layout. Dennis was a 10-year apprentice to nationally known portrait artist, Richard Whitney. Dennis first exposed me to the valley of Kauloa Ranch and he did some Hercules-like paintings that are still ingrained in my brain. Awesome painter. Last I heard, he paints in Kauai and goes back and forth to Conn. Thanks Dennis! - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Diamond Head Playground
    Ref. No.: 23841 ** Price: $3800 ** Size: 36" x 60" ** Inspiration: "Diamond Head Playground" was done on location ten years ago on another canvas, which I sold. I went to the same location 2 weeks ago and the trees have grown so I couldn't see Diamond Head. I had to walk out to the Kapahulu groin wall and by going all the way to the end, I could get the similar view. I did a 12" x 24" study and did the larger one in my studio. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Olomana, Hawaii - April 2015
    Ref. No.: 23842 ** Price: $2800 ** Size: 36" x 36" ** Inspiration: "Olomana" was painted in 3 sittings. The first time, I was blown off the area by a series of strong winds. The group of women exercising (stroller strides) was seeing if I would stick it out, but we all left and I returned after getting my layout in. I used to pride myself on trying to finish in one sitting "Alla Prima", but I took the pressure off myself. Fellow Plein Air artist Mark Norseth would tell me, "Who says it has to be done in one sitting?" He was right. I also remember some of the laid back guys in high school would say "taaakkkeee ittt eeeaaasssyyyy!" - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Olapa Sandy's
    Ref. No.: 23843 ** Price: $5500 ** Size: 36" x 80" ** Inspiration: "Olapa Sandy's" was painted in 4 sessions on the mid zone of Sandy Beach where surfing is permitted. Usually in the break, only bodysurfing is allowed but either way, they both get my respect. Olapa is used in Hawaiian Hula, as "in the style of" and the parade of warriors of men/boys, women/girls that take on the shore break is awesome! - NEW RELEASE

  • 2/1/2015 - Kaiser Bowls Friday - NEW RELEASE
    Ref. No.: 23635 SOLD ** Price: $2800 ** Size: 30" x 40" ** Inspiration: I enjoy painting at Kasier Bowls because of the activity in the area, and not always in the water. Despite the distractions, I tend to focus more on my work as everything else becomes white noise. Usually there is a color note of red with Mondo's Catamaran anchored just offshore, but he is leasing it to another company for now.

    Ref. No.: 23638 ** Price: $2800 ** Size: 36" x 36" ** Inspiration: The Hala tree painting received a naturalistic style treatment, and it was easy to because of the subtle lighting on the 1st day of a 2-day paint out. But the 2nd day was intense, and revived it with light.
