The Cartoon Transfer Process

The Cartoon Transfer Process

The cartoon transfer process is an age old process employed by many artists to quickly transfer a sketch to the desired paint surface. This video shows the process in detail. 

It has been a while since I have painted an old master's copy and thought I share a bit about the transfer process of a painting from sketch to canvas. There are many ways to achieve this and as you can see in the video how Renaissance Masters would often create a chalk drawing first and then use a piece of paper filled with chalk to transfer the  key lines of the preliminary sketch.
