We  started to observe  GRB 190114B  ( Siegel et al., GCN 23686 )  
with  GWAC-F60B 60cm optical telescope  at 19:46:26 UT, 
Jan. 14th  2019,  about 14  min after the burst. 

The afterglow reported by ( Goad et al., GCN 23691;  Fernandez-Garcia et al., GCN 23694; 
Pozanenko et al., GCN 23696) was not detected  in R band images.  
The upper limit is estimated to be about 18.3 mag  calibrated by nearby USNO-B1.0 stars.

GWAC-F60B is operated by Guangxi university and NAOC, CAS, at Xinglong observatory, China.
