I liked my sketch so now comes the tedious part and outlining it. Sometimes I out line the whole image in a light gray and other times, I will use the color I will paint for the outline. Here it was an easy choice as it is mostly blacks, oranges and yellows.
I use a nice light table that my husband built. It is great and I can get a rather large sheet on there. An artist must have a light table. When I first started, I would have to retraces things on my windows. That was hard but we must start from somewhere.
