Finding the Drawing
After the entire surface is more or less covered, I go back in with the original dark washy color and find the drawing again. I don't redo the grid or anything. At this point, there's enough information on the canvas to just freehand everything, little detail stuff and all.
I try to keep the drawing fluid and loose, and I don't worry that the color I'm using with which to draw is not the value or color I want to end up with. I could use (and have used in the past) a fat black permanent marker if I thought it were handier than a brush.
After I've redrawn just about everything, I'm ready to go back with more paint and continue developing the surface. Tedious, isn't it?
