MEANWHILE, I've continued with this little Harry Potter portrait for my grandson. I made some corrections and changes on the sketch, scanned it in and then printed in out on a sheet of watercolor paper. Next, I mounted it on a 6"x 12", 1/2" cradled panel, using acrylic matte medium. Applied two coats on top of the sketch to seal the paper.
Next, I applied a coat of acrylic mixed with medium. It was too opaque, so I wiped most of it off and went over the lines with a sepia colored pencil. That way I can see it better when I apply the acrylic tone. I also added the name of the spell and the house....had forgotten he wanted that. I plan to do them very subtlety...with just a slight shift in value from the background so they don't stand out too much.
