Nothing on Paper Birch Panel
www.jphfinearts.net

I successfully attached a piece of paper to a birch panel without any problems. In contrast to my attempt last year with the painting"Dreaming" where I had to pull, scrape, and sand off 2 large pieces of paper before getting the 3rd to work.

My son thinks this large panel is for him to draw on. He says I'm joking when I tell him it's for one of my drawings.

I'm trying to do some smaller still lives for practice. I haven't decided if I will continue to do these little practices with or without the gold leaf. I'll just need to experiment more on these smaller canvases and see if it is actually viable.

I might be finished with the face, I'll probably pick at it a little more throughout the rest of the drawing. I still need to work more on the hair.

I start every drawing the a detailed cartoon transferred onto the paper, then the gold leaf is laid down. The drawing needs to be perfect at this stage because I won't be able to move the gold around once the drawing gets started.
