Wetland Louisiana

Watercolor only on Fabriano acquarello 140 lb. cold press block. 12x 18 inches. This isn't the entire picture when the photo as taken they cut off some from both the left and right sides.  I'm trying to learn how to paint water and get the depth needed for large area landscapes. This painting was requested from me so I gave it as a b.d. gift. If I had my hands on it I would probably change some things now that I've learned a little about glazing and underpainting.

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.
