Here, deep blues, golds, emerald greens, and vibrant pigments converge into visual splendor, reminiscent of the rising sun over a tumultuous sea. Brown makes a conscious choice to explore the hopeful side of life, rather than mirroring what seems to be wrong in the world.

I had to make conscious choice of how and what I want to experience in life and in this world. We all have pasts, histories, things we want to forget, but those things also shaped us. It makes us who we are. I do not want to focus on what happened, but how it shaped me. We can all choose to be shaped for the better or the worse.

Am Weinberg Boutique Hotel, situated in the upmarket suburb of Klein Windhoek, bought three paintings from Artist Leonie.e.Brown to decorate the entrance Hall of this luxurious, one-of-a-kind hotel. Just like this exclusive Hotel, Leonie’s work is unique and made with a specific idea and message in mind.

One of the greatest mistakes students make it to try and copy the color they see before them. This the worst mistake you could make in art. The best way to paint is to see the color as a ‘gray scale shape’. Before you start your panting, take a photo on your phone camera and change is to gray scale or black and white. Your picture should then be made up of High Lights (the lightest part), Base Tones (the darkest part) and the left overs should be Mid Tones. We also call this Notan.

Good design helps make the leap from mere rendering to art. There should be a dominant value (dark, middle or light). One of the basic rules I teach my students is to use the rule of 2/3 + 1/3 + a little bit. That rule applies to dark and light values as well as choice of color. In actual fact, it is such a good rule that you can apply it to everything you do.

Blue is the color of truth and healing. Not only does is represent the eb and flow of water, but also the translucency of water. The truth is always translucent, never hidden. It can be approached from all angles and still it will stand.

Play more – You didn’t lose your enthusiasm for play when you grew up. In fact, as an exceptionally creative adult, you still engage in “world play” of some kind, creating make-believe worlds with art or science. Your imaginary worlds led to more creative ideas.
