It’s time to do a drawing. I start by locating major landmarks using my viewfinder and knitting needles, and then measure and draw! (See ‘Drawing Again’ for details.) Drawing Again
Drawing the designs on the Greek vase will be time-consuming. I think I’ll leave them out for now so that I can more quickly get to my black-and-white study. Small details like the patterns on the vase won’t effect the larger composition, so I can just suggest them in the study without a detailed drawing to guide me. Once I’m happy with my study and don’t need to make any changes in the size of the finished painting, I can order my canvas. This usually takes a few weeks to arrive. I’ll use that time to work on the drawing of the vase.
