Precise Drawing in Portraiture Makes it Easier to Paint.

From my little rough sketch on A4 paper, I have finished drawing up my figures on to my big 101x76 cm canvas.  This took quite a lot of time - measuring, rubbing out and redrawing the whole way.  As I used different parts from different photos, I had to make sure that the sizes of each figure were correct.  In the end, it was a matter of what looked visually correct.

After all that rubbing out and re-drawing, I painted over the mistakes with gesso to help clean it up.  Now it's time to paint at last!
