Hi everyone, I am more a photographer than a painter and I would love to use my photos as reference, but I would like to redraw them before painting, essentially just to use them as a substitute of a life scene without relying too much on them.
The more I think about it the more I find this two problems.
1) I like to draw in big shape and not directly with lines..so if I do this with charcoal on the canvas it will be a mess.. So I need to draw the scene as big as the canvas on a big sheet of paper and than copy the outline onto the canvas again? Did u ever face a similar problem?
2) using photos u have all the time of the world and that's difficult to manage for me, I can go on and on.. what is your approach to this?
Here is an example in black and white about my drawing, very few lines and more shadows and light.
Thanks for reading!
