Challenge updated

I updated the first April challenge photo painting I post a week ago. I gave the white bowl difinition and added some color variety to the foreground. Keeping the mood of the plain white background and almost invisible bowl in the photo challenge photo was hard to do using color as backgound and foreground. 5×8 painting  on 140 lb. Fabriano cold press watercolor paper. I've left a lot of white area for matting as I think it needs it's space in a frame.

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.
