Following my recent post about having been commissioned to create a painting of a river estuary I can now tell you about part 2.
After agreeing with my customer on the basic design, painting size, and materials I proceeded to place the drawing on the canvas. Well, strictly speaking it was a HDF board with a canvas coating. It is a special primed board which is available in various sizes from my regular art supplier.
If you want to learn more about how to transfer a drawing onto the substrate click here to watch a 14 minute video explaining different methods. In this case I used carbon paper.
The next step will be to decide where the lights and darks should go by putting on an underpainting. That will constitute the first layer with many more to follow before the painting is complete. I´ll post the next steps asap.
