Initial Drawing

The drawing was first made on paper from memory. Then photos were taken to give it greater authenticity. After I was satisfied with this working drawing I scaled it up for placement and size, and then carefully drew it on the canvas (78”x48”) with charcoal. The next step was to draw over the charcoal with thinned oil paint (mixed with the Meyer medium) to seal it. Then it was time to take a break to let the oil paint set up.
