I'm trying to learn how and when to use a Hake brush. This composition is from a step by step study book and this was one of the projects. It's a little darker than the study painting but I' learned a lot about washes and dry brush work. It's done on the back of one of my old paintings and I didn't focus enough on the lines of the boats enough. aprox. 6×9 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. 

Comments, suggestions and critiques are welcome.
