Default Life sketch, RSG sized paper

I did this sketch on watercolor paper sized with RSG (left over from making a bunch of panels). While I had tried gelatin sized paper before, I had used it thinly but with this one, the RSG was applied a little heavily (the paper feels stiffer but not so much that it is likely to crack).

I was surprised at the feel of the paper -- it didnt feel at all like the panels (not as absorbent) and I could wipe-out all the way back to the RSG (sort of like how some oil painters do their underpainting). This was done with pure egg tempera. I might have to try to mount paper to panels and size with RSG, seems easier than using all those layers of whiting.. and sanding..

Any feedback welcome.
