How to Protect Your Picture While You Are Drawing

by Harold T. Way

I know in the past when I was drawing anything, I always had a piece of paper under my hand as I was drawing. I would also use a fixative and spray the picture as it developed to keep it clean.


This also works when using opaque paints and you don't want another colour to bleed on a finished part. Hope this is informative.

Just wondered what to use, I have tried various things but always seem to get smudges on the paper and overtime the sharpness of a sketch is lost. So what is recommended.

thanks
