I start my drawings on a uniform large 22” X 30” sheet of very heavy (250 gsm) heavily sized 2-ply paper made in the USA, 100% sulphite, neutral ph., Acid free, chlorine free, with an extremely durable Vellum surface. Though the paper made by Legion Corporation under the Brand of Rising is not as archival as 100% cotton rag paper it has a long-life cycle if cared for. I use Derwent Drawing Pencils (made in England) in the Venetian Red tone (6300) which are a smooth creamy almost waxy consistency and have a Lightfast value of #8, the highest lightfastness available. I used many tools other than the pencils to achieve the drawings, mostly all manner of erasers including electric erasers which can pull up all but a slight ghosted mark from a darkly drawn contour because the durable paper. I also use stumps or solid cylinders of rolled and pointed paper to smooth and blend the chalk.
