The cloisonnist lines are painted onto the canvas, sometimes I'll even project my loose sketches over the canvas to help guide me, keeping strongly to the initial sketches. I will also refer closely to photographic reference materials of elements on the table to make sure I represent them accurately.
*Below in the final painting. The colors within this work are hard to show within a photograph. Taking a picture of this scale of work provides unique challenges, the color represented in the small detail image, represents the work far better than say the shot with me beside the painting.
