Before you sketch, lay a pre-cut mat on prepared paper and run a pencil along the inside lines so you can see the rectangular area of the painting in front of you. Remove the mat to sketch and paint inside the lines. You'll save a pot of money on custom framing because all the mats fit standard frames.
