Experimenting with sketching… and techniques to transfer the sketch to painted backgrounds without totally re-drawing the sketch.
I drew these kids awhile ago when I was trying my hand at learning how to put people in my paintings… my goal was to transfer them to a recent background I painted to create a remembrance piece for a friend. I’m reasonably satisfied with the outcome.
This is a sketch done in graphite on mixed media paper; then transferred to a background painting done with acrylic, watercolor, and ink on 140# watercolor paper.
