Speaking of the waterproof Expedition, the sketch I made of the cell tower from drizzly Maple Leaf Park (at right) brought to light a serious omission in my sketch kit! A red maple was at the base of the tower. Sketching the scene with a Gekkoso 8B pencil (extremely soft graphite is my favorite medium on the Expedition’s plastic Yupo pages), I started to reach for a red pencil to draw the maple when I realized that all of the colored pencils in my bag are water-soluble! Not useful in the rain. I immediately went home to remedy that omission for next time.
It amazes me that you actually sketch out in the rain. Doesn't the graphite wash off the Yupo pages?ReplyDelete
No, graphite is great on Yupo! I love how smoothly soft graphite glides onto that weird plastic paper. And the only reason I sketch in the rain is because the opportunity to sketch is what gets me out the door to get exercise. ;-)Delete
