Quiet Celebration

4 manager's special sunflowers for $1.00,  some things from my yard in a vase that I still don't know the color of. Started Oct. 13th and finished Oct. 21st.  Not perfect but that's not the point here. I actually put together something myself, used my good 140 lb. cold press Fabriano watercolor paper 9×12 and pressed on each morning even though a few times I was ready to once again call a picture a failure.  Very little damage control in this one as I'm finally understanding how to put down a background wash. I'm actually excited about setting up an inside still life now.

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.
