Good-bye Drawing!

I added several layers of dilute soft-body acrylic washes, building up the color bit by bit.  In the end, I rather like this little painting, but I have nearly totally lost the drawing that I worked so hard on.  And I did not achieve the look I wanted - of a tinted drawing.

This little painting was to be a prelude to a class on pairing graphite and acrylic but I ended up not taking the class.  It would have been pretty expensive as I would have had to travel.  And I thought I ought to be able to figure out that particular combination of media.  And I still think that goal should be within my grasp, but I certainly didn't achieve it here.

So, back to the drawing board, so to speak!
