I projected the image on a piece of watercolor paper taped to the wall and basically drew around the image onto the paper. This is just for practice after all.
It also allows me to mark the image area of my painting precisely and removal of the tape will leave a very clean painting when I am done. Since this is a pastel painting, you need to be mindful of smudging...
It took me several days to complete the painting and in general I'm quite happy with it. It was a practice piece and there are some things that may not be exactly "right", but that's ok.
Hope you like it. Tonight is the start of daylight saving time, so enjoy the longer days to come and remember to do plenty of art.
