Watercolor Pinup

This week I decided to turn the cameras on while I watercolored one of my older sketches. The sketch was only 3″x5″. I downloaded it from my facebook site, cropped it, enlarged it, then reduced it to black and white, and printed it. Then I taped a piece of graphite paper to my watercolor block, taped the printed drawing on top of that, and lightly traced it with the blunt end of a paintbrush. When I pulled up the tape, I had a pretty decent copy ready to paint! I taped off the borders and cut loose.
