Not Buddy!

Watercolor on a 4×6 inch Canson watercolor block.

A coworker wanted me to try to do a watercolor of her little gray/beige/white/silver dog Buddy on a watercolor block that belonged to her deceased father.  I said I would give it a whirl. She emailed me the pictures of him and I started in but about 3/4 of the way into it my daughter walked in and said " cute picture of Stella, why is her hair that color?". I realized that I had used my little dog Stella's eyes on her little dogs face!  Maybe it was my left brain taking over. She had given me all of her father's watercolor art supplies after he died so maybe it was the pressure to get it right.

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.
