Step 2: Transferring The Sketch


When you’ve planned everything, transfer the compositional sketch to the Arches cold press watercolor paper, but make sure not to include the values – you just want a line drawing of the basic shapes needed to guide your painting. Draw lightly so the pencil lines can be erased easily. The final sketch should be slightly smaller than the size of your paper; about 14″ x 11″. You can draw a border around your composition for framing purposes (use a ruler for this).
