Once the paint goes on the canvas, the grid disappears.
These cats are done in my “goofy cats” style, meaning I use collaged acrylics to draw them.
So how do I use a grid when the original penciled in grid is gone?
Using one of those quilting rules, I drew up grids with a permanent marker on cut down pieces of used laminating plastic sheets. I hold up my plastic grid to my painting and compare my painting to a digital photo with a grid on it.
As I compare my painting to my digital photograph, it’s easier to fix lines and colors by flipping the plastic grid sheet on and off my painting.
