I often use a piece of acetate or see through plastic. Drawing with a water soluble pen, or wax crayon I draw several sizes of people and then move them around the painting to see where they look most suitable.
Simple idea but very effective.
This is a small piece of acetate, to show you how I used this idea on my recent Scotland painting. I do have a larger sheet. If you use crayons you can also try different colours
|This can be other things too, eg boats, trees etc|
|I should have put the man in red on the right somewhere, but for now he is staying where he is.|
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
