hi my watercolor friends,
today i show you how to copy sketches or pictures.
i will show you my selfmade lightbox.
its just a plastik storage box with an clear top and i put an led handlamp inside.
at the top i put the motive that i want copy and then an pergamentpaper where we wrap our sandwiches.
then i on the light in the box an i can see well the picture, sketch on the pergament paper.
i follow the lines with an pen until i have captured the motive.
after this i bend over the pergament paper and black it with an very soft pencil (2B) special at the lines what i can see.
then i lay the paper on my drawingpaper with the blackpaintet side on it and i draw the lines with an ballpen.
after that i have the motive at my drawing paper and can work it out with a pen or ink. then i can paint it with watercolors.
i hope this will be help and usefull for you too.
