Having finished the first of the illustrations, am making a start on the next. I need to map out the drawing before making any major marks, a geography if you like.
My first map is quite detailed, where I worked out the journey I wanted to make. Then I moved to the notebook and moved the route about. Finally the tracks are laid down on the final map so that I have a path to follow whilst working. It means I can see the overall picture at the same time as I am working in detail.
