Whimsical flowers on Yuppo. I can't seem to get enough of yuppo and how the watercolor reacts on the paper. It is fascinating and completely different than working on traditional CP paper. I am thinking of cropping the bottom portion of the painting or redoing it. I need to let it sit for a while and then decide.
More Yuppo practice. The bottom tulips didn't photograph well as I would have liked but oh my, Yuppo is fun; the paint pools and swirls and you can move and wipe away what you don't like and start again.
Inspired by an artist at an art fair i attended yesterday. I saw this transparent colorful work on yuppo and i just happened to have some so today i gave it a try. I remember trying it before when i wanted to control the watercolor;lately i am more inclined to let the watercolor be the boss. Living and learning.
I painted these paintings this morning. As i painted my goals were to layer color and NOT to over work the paintings. Luckily i had an appointment which means i had to leave! Perfect for accomplishing my goal:)
Watercolor water play;seriously trying to see,yet again, what watercolor will do and what it won't do. These paintings are all experiments; hard to believe after so many years i am still discovering the many nuances of the medium.
