J04 Transferring an Image by Cindy Wider

A telltale sign of a professional artist is the ability to render a neat, clean artwork. Yet, quite often in early stages of the creative process, a potential masterpiece becomes irreparably smudged, soiled, or damaged. This wonderful simple technique shows you how experienced artists transfer the primary components of a drawing (or other image) to a fresh clean sheet of paper. As an aside, this technique is unknown to many students of art, but is certainly not new; in fact, it can be traced (pun intended) back to the great masters of the Renaissance.
