Painting Sara | Day 2

Now that the drawing is ready, I stain a canvas panel with venitian red wash.  After it’s dry, I trace the drawing onto the panel.  I have photographed the drawing, and am using a printout for the trace.

Then, I start drawing with paint, using the trace as a guide.

I work for about 2 hours, filling in and shading with washes of the venitian red.

I’ll let this dry overnight and start on the next phase tomorrow.
