Cowgirl Demonstration Day one
Day one Demo
This is how the painting looks at the end of the first day. Not much to look at.
I start by doing my drawing on tracing paper the same size as the canvas. When I'm happy with the drawing I transfer the major details to the canvas with carbon paper or transfer paper. I spray the canvas with a fixative.
I then block in the masses of color and let the painting dry. Since I paint in thin layers, this usually dries overnight.
