marks on yupo side by side

Marks side by side.

Another experiment on white Yupo with my new marker and acrylic ink. I'm enjoying this adventure into everything synthetic. So strange trying to control the quality of the line as it glides across the surface. I find this an exciting alternative to my rag paper and traditional inks. The other side of the coin in a way. I enjoy both and switching back and forth always keeps me sharp.

This drawing is in it's early stages. I don't know if it really will be something but the trip has been worth it so far.

From Yupo:
Yupo is a compelling and unique alternative to traditional art papers. It's a synthetic paper, machine-made in the USA of 100% polypropylene. It is waterproof, stain resistant, and extremely strong and durable.
