OK, so sticking up the image was the easy part,
but what was I to do next?
I debated drawing it out versus tracing.
Of course, tracing sounds easier.
It would also ensure correct placement of parts.
So tracing won out, but it wasn't a simple matter at all!
the image was very faint, barely visible.
Still, I soldiered on!
Of course, I had to first make a tracing paper quilt.
But I realized right away that I should make
the quilt as I trace along, not before,
since I had to constantly lift the tracing paper to
take peeks at the photo to make sure I was on track.
This is what it looked like.
Can hardly see a thing, right?
Did some shading.
I can see some of the tonal differences now.
How will this tracing help?
I'm hoping it will enable me to see the picture
in a more two dimensional way.
Break it down to its basics.
That way when I trace it on fabric I can focus
on the main parts first.
At least that's what I'm hoping!
