Yuko Soi About


I’ve been drawing with colored pencils for thirteen years.

I like their beautiful and gentle color, the way it shows the white of the paper. It look light, and weak when lined up with other oil and acrylic paints. Colored pencils are an important drawing material for me to express the delicate heart of person. I have been thinking about how to maximize their good point. I met a black pencil there. Until then, I didn’t want to use black much. I wanted to show bright colors. My feeling changed two years ago, when I started to draw abstract paintings. I started to use black. Black added depth to my works. Black made the color of colored pencils more beautiful.
