How to do huge sketches in the field (and not carry a lot of stuff)
I didn’t want to carry a lot of stuff last weekend. It was raining, and I knew we’d be moving around from place to place. Here’s a shot of how I do my large format sketches on letter sized paper.
Everything is getting scanned for the blog anyway, so I don’t mind having to patch it together in photoshop. Often I’ll draw people or cars on separate sheets and add them to a drawing. I collage the sheets together using the layer mode ‘darken’. Often I’ll put a curves or levels adjustment layer over the top to eliminate any shadows from paper edges.
