From start to finish. Painting.


The painting process begins when I have completed the drawing, and cleaned up the surface of the painting. I erase any marks that might have been left over from corrections in the drawing.

I usually begin by painting in the background first. The sky and ground are blocked in, and then I begin working on the figure and other little details. The pattern on the dress I drew in with a silver paint pen. Most of the watercolour will resist the silver paint, but I will go back and touch up any areas that the paint might have  covered.
