acrylic painted papers on wc paper
I don't have any profound revelations for this piece so I will just share this one technical thing. I take my initial sketches and generally draw a grid over them (4 x 5 ratio). I use that grid to enlarge the drawing onto my piece of watercolor paper. This time though I didn't want to mess up my sketch so I used a plastic sheet protector, drawing the lines with a black Sharpie on it. I placed it over the sketch and taped it down with contractor's tape. Very handy, low tech solution!
The drawing was transferred and I stayed pretty faithful to my sketch but did make some changes, both inadvertent and deliberate! I am drawing freehand here so things aren't perfectly duplicated. I like being able to switch things and think about stuff as I go though so it works out fine. There is always more than one good idea!
OK, hope everyone is having a good week so far. Thanks for reading and leave a comment if you can.
