I usually draw onto tracing paper as it works well when transering the drawing onto watercolor paper. Here's my sketch ready to be transfered using Saral graphite transfer paper.
Skin tones and underpainting of irises.
Eyes, lashes and brows finished.
Hair finished. Starting underpainting on frames.
Purple Spectacles - 5" x 2"
Purple Spectacles on Hot Pressed Paper
I wanted to re-do this using Hot Pressed Paper. It forces you to loosen up a bit as it's nearly impossible to get a smooth wash on such smooth paper. I've only used Hot Pressed paper a couple of times. You can get some really nice effects with it. However, I still very much prefer Cold Pressed.
