I generally use wax oil pastels to draw with as they are less likely to smudge especially while working out in the field. Again I use a special paper which allows me to remove unwanted marks with a scalpel without tearing its surface. Perhaps after many dozens of drawings there will always be one or two that just feel right...everything else will be discarded.
