Establishing the images

4 George uses a photographic projector to transfer his studies onto canvas [left). This method enables him to paint the tonal areas directly onto the surface without the presence of outlines and construction marks. You can use a home transparency projector and transfer your pictures onto the wall against which you have placed your work surface.

5 George begins with the dark areas of the cave to establish the composition. He then projects his drawing of the dragon into the central area. Using this method enables you to combine any number of elements very accurately, but care must be taken to imagine a common source of lighting to avoid the images appearing out of context.
