Watercolors by Scott Brown

Scottercolors is a collection of watercolor paintings that I have done over the last decade, off and on, and  they represent my fascination with boats and a willingness to try different styles. Take a look around. Be sure to like or share anything that tickles your fancy.

The Smith Lake Collection

I spent a lot of time on the lake, lately. The result is a collection of fun images and especially memories, as well as a coffee table book of the entire collection. It is sort of like a Smith Lake Guide Book.

Line and Wash

I often include ink as part of my watercolor paintings, known as line and wash. I find this to be a very fun style of painting, both in the activity and the result. 

Inktober 2018

Inktober is a world-wide activity that promotes creating an ink drawing everyday for the month of October. This was a significant challenge that resulted in some interesting results.

I do accept commissions on a limited basis.  As this is a hobby for me, I can’t take them all, but if I have the time, I enjoy producing something that will become a family treasure.


Once in a while I will document a painting from concept to completion, because of its interest sometimes, and other times as a check of my process. If you are a new painter, there may be something here that will help you.

On my recent #driveacrossamerica I snapped a 70mph photo somewhere in Kansas.  Painted with a 3-color pallette. .

Not a lot of time to paint lately, but wanted to get my thoughts down in a study of the intersection of Holmes and Jefferson in #downtownhuntsville, while it was still spring and still fresh in my mind.
