I have transferred my drawing to the linen canvas and began the actual laying in of the painting. I am on day three of the painting process and once I have it entirely laid in, I will post a shot of it.
I put up the last image that I thought was done, on a critique site with fellow students from SmArt School. Here is the image now that I have made several changes which resulted from fresh eyes seeing my art and spotting some awkward areas and mistakes to change. I love this drawing. I have never spent this much time working on the initial stage of drawing for a planned painting. I think it has really paid off.
