I posted a long story of my relationship to with Stephen on my main Blog which I won't get into here. Here are some landscapes by Stephen Brown. Stephen loved color and his paintings are LOADED with colors. Stephen was able to sneak all kinds of colors into his paintings because of two things:
1. His values are spot on.
2. He "worked" the paint into the surface.
(I can show this in class better than I can explain it here.)
