There may be occasions when you want to transfer a drawing or painting to a larger size support. I find it particularly useful if I have a small plein air oil sketch that I think is worth developing into a larger work back in the studio. In my demonstration, I’ll show you how simple this process can be, just by following the tried and tested method for scaling up your work, although I suspect that many of you may already be familiar with this method. In this short studio demonstration, I’ll be working with Jackson’s Artist quality oil paints, and using the indirect approach to painting by working in stages/layers.
