Oh, Wow! A different take on removing everything that doesn't look like a horse...and the painter, holding the wild horse. Original, Fun! Very cool!

Can't wait to see what you do with it!!

Step 2. Tape up four full sheets of paper onto the wall that over lap each other about and inch or so.
Step 3. Print out a photo of the sketch and use a photo enlarger to transfer the sketch onto the paper(s)

Re: Dreams & Imagination

Step 3 Start to mix some aqua blue and cobalt blue to place in the kimono and place on the can of paint that spells out the word imagination except I used kanji to spell it out, the can of paint that he is pulling it from will be a blue/aqua and the paint brush he is painting with will be yellow So if you mix blue with yellow I will end up with a green dragon.

Re: Dreams & Imagination

Step 6.Take some photos and close ups of the dragons hand and the shadows underneath that hand also a close up of the painters arm and the painters face just to show some of the details that I'm adding that are lost in the larger photos. Then call it a night

Re: Dreams & Imagination

Four(!) Full Sheets. Wow! THAT is huge! Are you taking down each sheet to paint? And when done, mount it on board? Call me "flabbergasted!" It will be sight to behold!
