EEEP!! I haven't been around much this week so I missed this post in the IYP gallery. I LOVE this and I can only imagine how thrilled kittykill must be to have it.

I've adored your recent dog paintings, racky. You really have a talent for it! It's great to see your process.

Thanks for sharing your process!!  You and I work in a very similar way (even though our end products are quite different).  I always love seeing how other people create art.  The painting couldn't be cuter!  Top notch work! This and others of yours I've seen are really fantastic!!  I love your tip about how you did the tiara.  I think I'll be incorporating that into some future project.  Grin   I agree with the others who love carbon paper.  It is definitely faster than doing the pencil thing.  I get mine at Michael's with a coupon (in the drawing supplies section) and it's pretty cheap.  I like to work on pretty large paintings sometimes...would hate to pencil in the back of  a 36 inch sketch.   Tongue

This could totally just be my own weird problem, but I find that sometimes marks left with carbon paper act as a "resist" when I go to put paint down.  It seems like carbon should be carbon...but I wonder...I still use the "scribble method".  Wink

Brilliant and simple technique - thanks for sharing! I am irked at myself, as I have used a similar method for other things, and never thought to try this with a painting.  I am going to give it a try with my dogs too because I have been wanting to have art of my dogs for the longest time!
