Another family member to add to the mix. I started sketching the images onto the collage with a white charcoal pencil/pastel pencil for the lightest values and a charcoal pencil for the darkest values. I don't know why I didn't think of this idea sooner. Because the collage paper is coated with acrylic medium, I can easily "erase" the pencil with a damp paper towel or wet it with a brush and wipe it away. When I am satisfied, I wet the pastel/charcoal to lift off the excess powder and paint right over it. I must remember to add these two pencils to my supply list for my students.
