The below image is the one I was attempting to sketch in the above image. I just couldn't quite get the mood right. She looks sad more than anything. Anyway because I started again I decided I would trace the image onto the background.
I have the tracing paper but not carbon so I coloured the back in with pencil. This transferred quite well. I can truly say that 95% of the below image is traced and 5% hand drawn. At least the expression is better in this one.
The next lesson is starting to paint her. I hope I can do that well. I might practice on my original sketch first.
If you want to check out Paulette's artwork I have a link on the side of my blog. It is really good.
Hope every one is enjoying their Easter.
