Lesson 7 of 17
In Progress

Stage 5: Sketching the Image

Using the thumbnail design that I selected, I created a series of grid marks on tape that I put on a photocopy of the reference photo.  This copy will not be used during the painting process since the colors are not accurate.  However, I keep the photocopy handy to provide for periodic rechecking of the alignment and proportions of the drawing.
