Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I printed the reference photo onto a 5x7 format to use as a reference and photoshopped the reference photo and cropped each item so I could display a very large image of each on my computer. I cheated a little (ok, a lot) on the drawing. From photoshop I displayed the outlines and printed that at the scale I needed then used carbon paper to trace onto canvas. I tried to paint the same way as the class demonstrated. Please forgive me but I was desperate. The class was great!

I've heard it said that you get the picture on the canvas anyway you can. It's all okay. You did a great job painting the picture. You're braver that me. I haven't started yet. Am still watching the video and processing. If I were you I'd be very proud with the results.

This is technique......Not Cheating! In what way would you paint and say you were not cheating?
