|Here are some details about my project:|
Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I used Swrathmore Tracing paper, 9"x12" smooth surface. Graphite pencils B, HB, H, 2H, 4H, erasers, shading stick, a fan brush and an Albertian Veil on tracing paper were used. This was a process over much time. First the eye line did not seem correct. I noted the 3/8th inch of the veil material seemed to make a wider line than a piece of thinner material. After much testing and retesting, I felt that I had to have a smaller foreground. The time between the original and traced drawing left me uncertain as to where I actually was when doing the original drawing I presumed. Then the tracing paper was difficult to see through so I used various methods to correct that; none worked very well. Thus, I got a new brand and after using it on the drawing I removed it and finished the scene. I must have done several attempts until it appeared corrected to me.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check the veil material. At the art store I felt I had clear material, but not so. Also, test the tracing paper to be sure you can see through it. I tried to simulate a light box with the sketch book but it was not working for me. I found it more difficult to draw not the tracing paper than on the sketch book. If I had used more dark lines it might have been easier, yet I didn't want dark lines.
