Sure, it's feasible.
For an example check out this link; you'll see the finished portrait and preliminary sketch that was done in cp: http://leversandpulleys.com/artblog/...l-and-alcohol/

Hi Ed-
Here's an example for something I did a while ago which is rather sketchy:

Re: LooseSketching..feasable with cp?

Many people who work in other mediums (like Acrylics or Oils) use cp's in their planning process. They do looser, sketchier versions in cp of what will become a finished piece in their medium of choice.

Cp's are versatile. You don't *have* to do a bazillion layers if you don't want to. So if you feel the urge to develop a cp style that isn't as densely layered, that is looser and more energetic and immediate feeling, go right ahead!

And don't forget to share with us!

This is exactly how I got started using CP. And to be honest, I sometimes prefer the cp sketch to the finished acrylic. I usually use CP in my sketch book. I love using loose strokes, and sometimes doing what may look like scribbling on close inspection. Just grabbing colors I think will work and scribbling them into the mix. It's pure fun.

Re: LooseSketching..feasable with cp?

I thought of this post right away when I saw Tali's dog drawing today. Was going to post a link to it here but then noticed she already did that above.

You can go as loose and sketchy as you want to, and create some beautiful things in that style. If you do some experiments I hope you will post them.

Re: LooseSketching..feasable with cp?

Once in a while I like to do a sketchy, scratchboard-like piece using white Prismacolor on black paper. I think it can be a very effective approach.

Hope this helps.
