March challenge

Watercolor only on 140lb. cold press watercolor paper. I didn't draw any of this first and sort of winged it. I had painted the little girl Aubrey first and then decided to try something new for the background, something I won't do again as it's hard to get the light correct after the fact. Her dress was a light pink and she had on a white sweater.I took her out of her grandmother's backyard and put her in a more interesting setting 😉 It was fun though to try something different.

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.
