I made a fairly complete sketch on tracing paper. Watercolor is difficult enough without having to alter the drawing as you go. Unless you are doing "happy accident" watercolors, completing a drawing will make the final work much easier. It took a little time but as Mario Cooper said "What's your hurry? After all it's a work of Art" (Watercolor By Design, 1980). I find I enjoy drawing on tracing paper - it is so easy to make corrections and the paper is quite durable. Would you like to use my drawing and try this painting yourself? This original, signed drawing is available for 110.00 including shipping.
