Christmas Alpacas - Sepia Nighmare!

Working on a Christmas alpaca painting.

After the initial pencil layout I made a dangerous move by outlining the picture in a sepia toned medium. This is because this medium smudges a lot!

Even with a coating of fixative spray the sepia tends to smudge. So if I apply watercolour and the painting result is a muddied mess of sepia then this may be the last you ever see of it...

I love a challenge!
