Light box


anyone use a light box when drawing?

It's a great way of upgrading your sketches to tighter drawings- works particularly well with line drawings

Or you can just tighten up a sketch and add some neutral tint or naples yellow to make a pencil drawing come alive

For advice about Birding, Identification,field guides,  binoculars, scopes, tripods,  etc - put 'Birding Tips'   into the search box

  • Haven't used my old lightbox since I moved to digital photography years ago. I'd never considered using it for drawing and it may be too late to try it now as I have a feeling I finally skipped it last year along with the slide projector. I'll have to check.

  • I've only ever used to use a light box when creating embossed greetings cards but when I moved I gave all my craft tools including light box to my cousin who is a teacher at a school. Guess they may be able to make use of it for drawing ! Have you any more beautiful artwork to show us Mr see more birds !!
