A friend of mine gave me a canvas with some old gray paint on it. It's perfect to experiment on. I wondered if I could draw on acrylic with charcoal, so I drew on the paint that already existed on the canvas, sprayed it with a fixative and was able to paint without the charcoal smudging. The charcoal drawn directly on the paint yielded a beautiful line quality. I then smudged pastel over the paint with a little extra charcoal smudging. Face drawn from visual memory.
