When you look at the larger view of this image, you’ll better see The Primer Coat that I started on the top of the body.  Thankfully I had some left over lightly tinted primer paint in the garage that I could use for this project.

Now the entire project is All Primed.  Applying the primer paint to the paper towel layer, gives the skin of the project the feel of a paint canvas, which will make it easier to apply paint.

Drawing the Outlines
Drawing the Outline

Here I started Drawing the Outline using a purple watercolor pencil (you may need to look at the larger view to see it).  Normally I use a grey w/c pencil however it’s decided to be some place other than where I needed it to be.  I like to draw with a w/c pencil because as the paint hits the pencil lines they become absorbed and erased from the canvas.
