"Message in a Bottle" Session 2 & 3: Drawing & Transfer

8x10 inches
graphite on gessoed panel
work in progress

After I transfer the drawing to the panel I spend more time-drawing every line from life and refining it to the highest degree possible. The more details I work out here, the less problems I will have to solve in paint. The traced image always deadens, so I never just go from traced transfer directly to paint.
