Rogerio Lupo – true talent with an extremely light hand

Dried oak leaf by Deanna Gammon

We have the pleasure to host Rogerio Lupo from Sao Paolo, Brazil to teach both graphite and ink techniques for scientific illustration. The first 3-day workshop on graphite ended yesterday.
The take home for all was to work with light hand and even pressure through the whole process,  letting the pencil ‘fly’ to the paper and out from the paper, and working with the general  form/value before moving into the details.

Perhaps the most satisfying part was to see the process of illustrating trees by continuously working with the negative areas in the background to enforce the foreground details.
