#1 Wallace's Beekeeper

This little image started with some muddy color in the palette that I was supposed to be washing out. I hated to waste the colors that were left so I just started putting the brush down and saw a person forming so I went from there. Someday I would like to be able to paint figures and nudes like I see here but right now I just do gesture work. Catching the moment of the body moving a certain way or a look in the eyes is one of my biggest goals as a new artist.

About C. Brown

I'm 58 yr. old. I work full time for a private non-profit organization in Ohio.  I try to draw or paint something every day.  At the moment the majority of the pictures I will be posting here are from my sketch book so there are going to be sometimes unfinished paintings and some with obvious eye sores here and there in the painting. Watercolor can be unforgiving and I'm working on understanding what to expect from it. Once I build up some confidence I would like to take a basic drawing class at the Columbus Community College and also a Saturday figure drawing class at Columbus College of Art and Design. Now that I'm a member of the Artists Daily community I'm looking forward to taking advantage of all the free instructional downloads available to members.
