Here is a thumbnail sketch of my next painting. I will be using some of the techniques I experimented with a few days ago. I plan to use conté with tissue paper. Currently I am debating the size and support of the painting. It will be either 300lb rough watercolour paper or canvas. If I go with watercolour paper it will be a half sheet; the canvas will likely be 24 x 30. I need to see how the conté will handle on these supports.
The blue in the sketch I see as being metallic.
