work in progress: large drawing

 This large sheet of paper is handmade amate paper, which is a technique of making paper from bark fiber, practiced by the Otomi Indians in Mexico. This sheet was made of four batches of cooked kozo bark, which were then hammered into sheets with a large stone. 
This sheet is approximately 66" wide by 30" tall.
 This is a test sheet I made to determine the techniques I will utilize to complete the large drawing. It's going to take me quite some time, but I'm excited to devote myself more to it this semester!
