Behind the scenes

Today's March Meet the Maker prompt is process. (Part 2) Once I have my word planned, I draw it to scale on A3 paper. I use the photocopier at my library to enlarge the design to fit the watercolour paper and then go about drawing the botanical details. Each stage requires transferring the design to fresh paper - 4 sticky taped A3 sheets for each layer. I need to make an additional layer drawn in ink as it's dark enough to show through the watercolour paper. Finally, I'm ready to start painting it on the light box!
