Chickadee on Yupo #20
Drawing with pencil on it it rather like skating on smooth new ice. I'm used to a little 'tooth' and so it is easy for the line to get away from me. What really excited me is the range of values I can easily get with an ordinary pencil. I was sketching with with a mechanical pencil filled with 2B lead. The blacks are so rich! and even more amazing, I can put that much black on and still erase easily. Down at the bottom of the Chickadee drawing I put a scrap of Yupo and showed how easily it erases. The scribbles on both sides of the ball have a portion in their middle erased clean with a soft, white eraser. Then I lifted a highlight out of the ball with the same eraser.
I'm itching to do a totally different idea on Yupo. More to come.....
