Pencil sketch scanned in

I love painting on Arches oil paper so I was happy to find that I could print out my scanned pencil sketch on the paper cut to 8.5x11" and get straight into painting a value study; a time saver for complicated compositions that need preliminary value or color sketches. Brushing Gamsol over the print didn't smear the ink. I'll print out another one and do a color sketch for this composition that will be a 24 x 36" commissioned oil painting on linen depicting the wine making process.
