I like creating GIF’s on the rare occasion that I actually consistently take progress shots of my work. Please note this project is probably only 70% done. I still have a lot of little details to work out. When I do finish this painting, I will upload the final piece as well as a complete process GIF.

How do you transfer sketches on to canvases?
Anonymous

Hi anon, thank you for asking! it’s can be a bit of a long process, but I found it was helpful to make sure everything was drawn accurately….

Since my goal is it have a very symmetrical and clean final piece, I scanned my original sketch into the computer, redrew it in illustrator, and then printed off that drawing. The canvas is much larger than regular copier paper, so I ended up taping 4 sheets of paper together.

I scrubbed some pressed charcoal onto back of the printout, essentially making my own transfer paper. Then I carefully lined up the printout where I wanted the drawing to be on the canvas, taped it down, and transferred the drawing onto the canvas that way.

Afterwards I had to go back in and redraw the details, but the most important part - the large shapes, we’re accurately placed and ready to paint.

I’m always happy to answer anyone’s questions, so fire away tumblr!!
