Just a few in-progress shots for you. The initial sketch went on some craft paper (the largest paper I've got). I inherited this fantastic roll from my grandfather, and it come's in very handy for big pieces!
Then I transferred the drawing onto the canvas...I had to ask a friend HOW to do that, because I didn't have a clue. Evidently they teach you odd tidbits like that in art school! The above pic shows the first colors.
And some more color....until finally...ta dah!!!
I don't know if this is a sunrise, or a sunset, but I don't care. I'm delighted with it! This is actually a family portrait for some friends who live north of town. If they have more kids we'll just add another canvas!
