Just curious, how do you transfer your sketches to watercolour paper?

I am having a lot of issues with this because I used to have an easily accessible overhead projector which made transferring images a lot simpler. Would love some tips!!!

A projector would be nice! I use tracing paper. I trace the sketch, then using carbon pencil I rub the BACK of the tracing paper, whereever there are drawing lines. (do not have to blacken the whole back).
Then I take the tracing paper with carbon back and position it on the watercolor paper, tape it down and REtrace the drawing , pressing hard so that it pushes the carbon onto the watercolor paper.

Sometimes, I sketch right onthe watercolorpaper and use a F pencil for finer line. It erases right out without damaging the paper at all.

I would love to see some of your work. I have two new things posted on my "Equines in ink, the artists journal" thread.

I don't know how I've missed this thread up until this point...but holy cow! Where have I been?!
Tiny this is awesome....beyond awesome. As I kept scanning down the posts I swear my mouth kept opening wider and wider in shock. And when I thought it couldn't get better...surprise! It did. Stellar job as always but this one's above and beyond. Congratulations, you deserve it.

Great Job! The child is wonderful, but the water splashing makes me want to duck so I won't get wet! Getting water to appear fluid on paper is not an easy task.
