Of course, I could have just sketched my drawing directly on my final art surface, or sketchrd it a second time on whatever I planned to use. I know me, though. Once I have spent all that time getting my drawing just right, I won’t want to draw it a second time on my watercolor paper. Also, if I do start my drawing directly on the watercolor paper, I have to be very cautious because erasing pencil lines can disturb the sizing on the paper which makes it difficult to have smooth washes when I am painting.
