Drawing for my final painting

I printed the photogragh a an A3 size. Then I used a grid technique to copy the picture. I drew lines across the picture so it was divided into 9 squares, then I drew the same grid on my paper. I covered tall of the picture except one square and I drew that square in the same square on my paper. Then I covered the next square on my paper. So I copied the photograph one square at a time.
