Watercolor Technique For Trying Ideas With Tracing Paper
Getting it on the painting
Take your “cartoon”; and position it on your painting. Tape an edge or two down, gently.
Trace your design using a ball point pen and a light touch. I use a red pen because it’s easier for me to see.
Use moderate pressure when tracing.
Too much pressure can bruise grooves into the surface of your watercolor paper. The dents can show up as dark lines if painted over.
