#2 Jan. Photo Challenge

This was a skill builder exercise for sure. I'm not sure who built the shelf but they didn't make the bottom of the wood brackets the same 😉

There was a lot of dry brush with this and also washing off the back ground brick because I messed it up. Getting the little houses and their shading correct took some thought before I put the brush to it but I'm glad I toughed it out.  The actual painting is a little darker as the scan settings were off a bit. Waterclor and HB pencil on 9×12 coldpress watercolor paper.

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. 

Comments, suggestions and critiques are welcome.
