DRAWINGS are created for immediate gratification, or when a reference photo is intriguing yet seems questionable as a painting. I usually complete them in one sitting between work on paintings, or while paintings are percolating.

Using markers keeps the drawings from getting too precious and forces a calligraphic sensibility. I typically do not measure or precompose. Just straight freehand drawing from eye to pen on paper.
