Preparing for a painting


This week I've been drawing, primarily the prep work for a painting. I'll be doing a demo later this month and I need to get some of the steps done ahead to show the step by step process. The first step is do work out the values and do a careful drawing. I don't want to do the drawing on my watercolor paper because I don't want erasers so I do a very careful drawing in my sketchbook. This is it....

Oh yes, like this too. I think your paintings done with the pouring technique are exquisite. I loved the last one you posted on here. You should consider maybe doing a Video of the Technique sometime. I bet it would be popular. :)
