 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.

And one more

Oops forgot this one!

Today's practice ... Yuppo!

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.

Today's painting practice

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:)

4th of July paintings

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.
