DAILY PAINTING: Stick drawing is done on large sheets of paper on the floor. You draw upon it by standing upright & holding a charcoal-tipped stick (yes, from a tree!) in both hands. The stick flexes & the charcoal does not run evenly on the paper, so it's difficult, to say the least!
It's impossible to draw anything small or detailed, so the image must be drawn large & then reduced. I've traced small groups of letters from the large sheets onto 8 x 10" paper to break down the big blocks of text, which then have to be made small enough to use on the canvas (without dominating the image, of course).
