I shot the reference photos of Sophia with a digital camera and had two of the digital photos converted to slides. I projected the slides onto canvas and drew a graphite pencil outline of Sophia using a .05 technical pencil. The size of this canvas is 24″ wide x 30″ high.
I decided to begin two paintings of Sophia and I call this one Sophia painting number 1. I began these paintings in June of 2012.
I have begun painting brown acrylic washes over the pencil drawing on this painting.
