I started making a sketch for the painting. I always end up putting too much detail into sketches that are’nt needed. opps more practice time, nothings going to hurt me.
After realizing I was putting too much detail into the sketch. I started just drawing out the bigger parts as you can see. The rest I’ll add as I paint and while I finished the sketch on the canvas.
Finishing the sketch, needed to transfer it somehow to the canvas.
Remembering I have a graphite stick somewhere. I looked for it, found it. Scribbled all over the back of the sketch. Pushed the pencil down on the bold areas quite aggressively.
Here’s what the canvas looks like.
The larger parts of the drawing were showing, not all the little detail. Added that later.
Over time, as I paint, I’ll add little details here and there.
Should have taken a picture, but I was too in the moment of drawing this. Forgot to take a picture.
Took a picture of the final sketch and canvas. Thought it would be interesting to see both.
