A demo for Thursday group highlighting precision measurements when transferring drawing to paper.
I am not averse to a bit of tracing when drawing on to canvas or paper but this time I got the ruler out and showed the scaling up from measurements taken from the photograph.
The composition is cinematic widescreen. I like the way the girl is peering out through the letterbox like window. This was two hours painting and I will give it some more time in the studio to finish some raw areas. Eyes, some hair bits, tonal adjustments here and there.
