1st. self portrait.

The July All Media Photo Challenge said do a self portrait. I've never done that and after spending a good 45 min.this morning trying to take a picture of myself and looking for old pictures of myself I gave and and sat at the table and drew myself from my minds eye using a charcoal pencil. This is actually a very good likeness of who I am as a person and what look like for the most part. It's hard to focus on yourself to do a painting. It just seemed weird but everyone else does it. 9×9 inch.

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.
