I cut a photo copy of the design into 5 equal parts, enlarged it to fit the panel, and sketched the basic shapes with a pencil. I'm mainly interested in basic shapes, placement and proportion - I'll worry about details as I paint. I was able to tansfer the design onto 3 out of 5 panels (so far) in a short amount of time.

I'll do the rest tomorrow. After that, I'll be ready to start painting...but I won't start that until next week (State Cup Soccer Tournament this weekend with oldest daughter). So, no updates for at least a week. Check back, though, and see how it all comes together. Posts may not be daily as the painting begins, but I'll try to keep the pictures coming.
