Normally I don't sketch - I just attack - but with this canvas I felt I needed to plan a bit more. It's huge, costed quite some money (with expensive stretch frame and special canvas prepared with three layers of gesso) and took time to prepare... Another thing is that I can't be as tough with this canvas as with paper - which means scrubbing and washing away isn't an option. I have to do it right straight away. (still working with watercolors)
So I sketch with yellow paper tape. And I really like the way it looks with just those straight lines. A thought to save for something else
I'm an artist. This is where I show my work in progress, post photos from my everyday life as an artist and write about art. I've been supporting myself as an artist for the last 13years and I want to share my strategies and experiences as I work to achieve more - and that inside information I wish I had had 14 years ago.
