When the drawing is finished, I photograph the drawing and print it out. Then I trace on to canvas panel using Saral transfer paper.
Next step is to set up a palette to begin painting. I generally only lay out colors I think I’ll use, rather than a classic palette setup. I mix Liquin with the paint, to thin and to speed drying time. I also brew up a cup of tea to sip while painting.
- On my easel, I set up several printouts of the subject. I print out more than one version, with different contrast settings to bring out hidden details and shadings.
