Laura Thomson of Thomson Portraits brought in these 8.5×11 images to have them blown up onto a special cut sheet stock that she also brought in. What she has done in the past, is project the image onto a wall, and trace over the image onto the paper that she has taped to the wall. Us being able to do everything digitally not only saves her a tremendous amount of time and frustration, but also makes sure that every detail is carried over exactly as it should be from the smaller document.
I am anxious to see how this turns out for Laura, and she said she will bring in the finished product for me to take a picture of and post to the blog. I think she said that she uses pastels over the printed image, which completely covers up the print, but allows her to be exact when doing portraits of landscapes or faces. I think it’s brilliant! I sure wouldn’t want someone to draw a portrait of my face and accidentally make my nose bigger than it already is. You know?
