I have made many alterations along the way so I have decided to show you the original photograph I took so you can compare it yourselves to where I’m now up to with the painting. The thing I regret is that it has taken so long to do and that I should have done the drawing on paper first.
I will be able to get 20 A1 tracings from each roll. I have made a few small changes along the way on the transfer paper and now I’m completely happy with the drawing and I’m more relaxed that I have another copy to refer back to. I will have to make the same changes on the canvas board now to match up with the drawing on the transfer paper as I want them the same.
Transferring the image from Canvas to Tracing Paper
Once I had done drawing on the canvas I wanted to have a copy myself for a couple of reasons. If I went wrong and needed the image again I would have a copy also I might need to refer to the copy once I had painted the canvas and lost a few of the lines; I bought a couple of rolls of transfer paper which were on sale at 98% of the original price, each roll cost less than £2 and the rolls were 110cm x 20m at 90/95 g/m2 which is wider then A1 so
One of the major changes I made which was really irritating me was how the overhead cables went around the corner and how these cables were held up. After referring back to primary and secondary research I managed to work it all out so it looked the way it should do and nothing looked out of place.
